Wagswoofs – Jonathan Huertas, also known as “El Don,” is facing multiple charges, including operating as a major trafficker. He was indicted in Manhattan Supreme Court as a result of his alleged involvement in two kidnappings and assaults that were related to a drug dispute in the Morris Park neighborhood of the Bronx in early 2022.
In September 2023, authorities captured Huertas in Jalisco, Mexico, after he fled New York following the arrest of three co-conspirators. He had evaded capture for over a year and a half before being deported back to the United States. The investigation uncovered that the incidents of kidnapping were connected to the theft of narcotics and also revealed plans for a third kidnapping.
Huertas is scheduled to appear for arraignment before Justice Steven Statsinger in Manhattan Supreme Court. He is facing charges of second-degree conspiracy, operating as a major trafficker, first and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, second-degree kidnapping, second-degree assault, and second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia.
