HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — A more than two year long search for a major drug dealer wanted in Cabell County has ended.

U.S. Marshals said Moises “Mo” Gamboa, 48, of Mexico, was arrested in Rocky Point, Mexico, near that country’s west coast, on Friday morning.

Gamboa was indicted in 2010 in Huntington on charges of running a $15 million drug business with at least five others that brought more than a ton of marijuana into parts of Ohio and West Virginia.

The charges against Gamboa were part of a larger federal investigation that lead to the arrests of more than a dozen people.

Gamboa will have to be extradited before being brought back to West Virginia to face the charges.

      A $2.00 bill for a .223 bullet to Gamboa's head might cure your taxpayer pain.

    Bring him back? His life in Mexico would be worse than life in a US Federal Pen I would think?

      Yeah, I'm sure the corrupt Mexican government agrees with you.
