Reyes-Pacheco was located in the lower rear apartment at this location and Torres-Morales and Quinones were taken into custody in the lower front apartment. As a result of the searches at the two apartments authorities located and seized a quantity of cocaine, marijuana, a large quantity of money and a loaded rifle.
