Central American man charged with drug trafficking in Monroe County

A man was arrested on charges of possessing nearly one pound of cocaine following a routine traffic stop in Monroe County late Thursday.


Law enforcement sources estimate the street value of the alleged cocaine at between $75,000 and $100,000.


Ruben Eduardo Villeda Duarte, 26, a citizen of the Central American nation of Guatemala, charged by Monroe County Prosecuting Attorney Talley Smith with trafficking drugs in the first degree, an “A” felony that carries a potential sentence of 10 to 30 years.


He was arraigned before Monroe County District Court Judge Michael Wilson on Friday morning, who denied bail.


According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, Villeda Duarte was stopped by Chief Deputy Joe Colston while driving a 2004 Toyota Corolla on U.S. Highway 24, traveling westbound just east of Madison at an alleged speed of 72 mph, 12 mph above the posted 60 mph limit.
