Narrative:

During the month of November 2012, the Ventura County Combined Narcotic Task Force (VCAT) received an anonymous tip that Peter Foy II was selling narcotics in Ventura County. VCAT initiated a criminal investigation into these allegations. In January of 2013, VCAT was notified by a narcotic task force out of Los Angeles County that a significant amount of U.S. currency was seized in the mail. This package was sent from Lexington Kentucky and was destined to Peter Foy II. A police K-9 alerted on the package to the presence of controlled substances. A search warrant was served on Peter Foy II's bank account. The bank records suggested that Peter Foy II has been laundering a significant amount of cash through his bank account for at least the last three years. On 6-6-2013, the Lexington Kentucky Police Department served a narcotic related search warrant at a residence in Lexington, Kentucky. Through this search warrant and other evidence found at the residence, it was determined Peter Foy II had been shipping a significant amount of packages over a year's period, which contained Oxycodone pills. In return, Peter Foy II was receiving a significant amount of packages through the mail over a year's period that contained large quantities of cash. In fact, in June 2013, the U.S. Postal Service seized a second package containing a large quantity of cash that was destined to Peter Foy II's residence. On 8-16-2013, Peter Foy II was arrested for a felony warrant for multiple felonies. The charges include transporting a controlled substance to a non-contiguous county, sales of Oxycontin, conspiracy, burglary and money laundering. Peter Foy II was booked into the Sheriff's Pre-Trial Detention Facility. He is scheduled to appear on the warrant on 8-19-2013 in the Ventura County superior Court.
