Norfolk, Va. – On January 13, Luis Perdomo was sentenced to eight years in prison for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine and one kilogram or more of heroin.

Perdomo, 27, pleaded guilty to the charges on September 23, 2015.

Court documents say Perdomo and others got cocaine and heroin from a source in New York City and brought it to a stash house in Norfolk before distributing it.

Money from the drug distributions were taken back to New York City in secret compartments of various cars.

Police searched Perdomo’s car in Maryland on March 31 during a traffic stop. They found $280,000 in three secret compartments inside of the car.

Police also found a drug ledger and several phones belonging to Perdomo in the car. One of the phones had a video of Perdomo handling several packages of a white powdery substance.

Another video on the phone had GPS data for the stash house in Norfolk.

GPS tracking devices were put on the cars at the stash house to track their drive to New York. Police found more drugs and secret compartments in the other vehicles.
