    [IMGL="white"][/IMGL]BENSALEM, Pa. — Narcotics agents have made the bust of the year here, seizing 280,000 ecstasy pills in a tractor-trailer and a reported $1 million cash in a car while nabbing four suspects as the deal went down.

    Three New Yorkers and the driver of a tractor-trailer from Canada were arrested in the midst of a giant cocaine-for-ecstasy-and-cash deal as local, state and federal narcs swooped in Wednesday.

    The suspects were jailed in lieu of $10 million bail each.

    After several days of discussions with three undercover cops and an informant, the end came with a whimper Wednesday as the truck from Canada arrived loaded with the hidden stash of pills.

    Ecstasy supplier “Imigrante” and a suspect named “Lolo” met the undercover officers at Parx Casino, 2999 Street Road, and “Imigrante” instructed the officers he would follow them to a location.

    The undercover cops drove to Route 13 south of Street Road, and the tractor-trailer, “Imigrante” and “Lolo” followed in a Honda and Kia. The Kia carried 50 kilograms of blow in a “trap” hidden compartment. Another 50 kilos reportedly were carried in another car.

    Authorities moved in the 2900 block of Bristol Pike.

    “Whereas, the tractor-trailer driver was identified as Robert Kalbarczyk (46, of Quebec, Canada), who cooperated with police and showed them where he had stored approximately 280,000 ecstasy pills,” the affidavit of probable cause read in the court documents filed with District Judge John J. Kelly Jr.

    “All four subjects (including “Lolo” and “Imigrante”) were arrested and three of the four gave incriminating statements, indicating that controlled substances or evidence of narcotics trafficking will be present within the vehicles.”

    Kelly signed search warrants for a Honda Accord and a Kia Sorrento, one said to have in the neighborhood of $1 million in it. Bensalem Police weren’t available for comment all day Thursday.
    Charged with criminal conspiracy and manufacture, delivery and possession with the intent to deliver, were Jose R. Reyes, 28, of Bronx, N.Y.; Martinez Leovigildo, no age given, of College Point, N.Y.; Hector Rodriguez, 28, of Copiague, N.Y., and Kalbarczyk.

    The case was sparked in September when a confidential informant introduced an undercover cop to the alleged prospective ecstasy supplier “Imigrante.”

    He wanted to trade kilogram quantities of cocaine for cash and ecstasy pills, and gave the informant a 10-pill taste.

    Reyes then sold 5,100 pills for $14,000 at Franklin Mills, and a month later, the deal got way bigger.

    “Whereas, on Sunday, Nov. 13, confidential informant #1 met with “Imigrante” at Franklin Mills Mall and discussed the sale of 100 kilograms of cocaine for $940,000 and 500,000 ecstasy ... Jose Reyes and ‘Imigrante’ advised that the ecstasy would be delivered in a tractor-trailer and that it had not yet crossed the Canada border.”

    By Nov. 14, it was here.

    Detective Sgt. Robert Bugsch and Detective David Clee and agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration worked the case since September, according todocuments.

    Four arrested in major drug sweep

    BENSALEM — Four men were arrested Wednesday and jailed in lieu of $10 million bail apiece after Bensalem police and federal agents busted up a suspected multimillion dollar drug ring.

    A tractor-trailer seized Wednesday had 280,000 ecstasy pills inside it, according to court documents filed with District Judge John J. Kelly Jr.

    And Kelly also signed two search warrants for two vehicles, a Honda Accord and Kia Sorrento, one alleged to have $1 million cash inside. It was unclear at press time what police found in the vehicles.

    Arrested were Jose R. Reyes, 28, of Bronx, N.Y.; Martinez Leovigildo, no age given, of College Point, N.Y.; Hector Rodriguez, 28, of Copiague, N.Y., and Robert Kalbarczyk, 46, of Quebec, Canada.

    All were charged with criminal conspiracy and manufacture, delivery and possession with the intent to deliver, records show.

    Court documents show that in September an undercover police officer was introduced to a prospective ecstasy supplier named “Imigrante” by a confidential informant.

    Imigrante was looking into trading kilogram quantities of cocaine for ecstasy and money. A kilogram equals 2.2 pounds.

    During the first meeting, Imigrante gave an informant 10 ecstasy pills as a sample and they talked about a sale of 5,000 pills, records show.

    On Oct. 13, Imigrante sent Reyes to Franklin Mills, who allegedly sold 5,100 ecstasy pills for $14,000, which is about $2.75 a pill, records show.

    On Sunday, a month later, an informant met with Imigrante at Franklin Mills and discussed a possible sale of 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of cocaine for $940,000 and $500,000 worth of ecstasy, records show.

    Reyes was driving a red 2005 Kia Sorrento. The alleged drug deal was set for 11:30 a.m. Monday at a location in the 3300 block of Progress Drive in Bensalem.

    Reyes and Imigrante told the informant the ecstasy would be coming in a tractor trailer from Canada, records show.

    On Tuesday, informants met with Imigrante and another suspect named “Lolo” at Parx Casino. They discussed the sale of 100 kilograms of cocaine for an amount of ecstasy and cash, records show.

    Unbeknownst to Reyes, DEA agents watched him leave Parx and drive to the Commerce Circle parking lot in Bristol. From there, the vehicle was followed to the Holiday Inn, 3499 Street Road in Bensalem.

    On Wednesday, two informants met with Imigrante and Lolo at Parx again.
    The suspects talked to undercover police and agreed to meet on Route 13 with a tractor-trailer.

    Agents and police converged on the site Wednesday afternoon and arrested the four men.
    Kelly arraigned the four men late Wednesday and sent them to Bucks County prison in lieu of $10 million bail each.

    Detective Sgt. Robert Bugsch and Detective David Clee and agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration worked the case since September, documents show.
