One of the most powerful traffickers in Puerto Rico, Angel Ayala Vazquez, was reportedly convicted Tuesday on drug trafficking charges, along with his brother, Luis Cruz. The two shipped cocaine from Colombia to the Dominican Republic and the U.S., as part of the drug network run by infamous Puerto Rican kingpin Jose Figueroa Agosto, alias “Junior Capsula.” In another potential brewing scandal, Vazquez’s name has appeared in connection to former Marlins pitcher Livan Hernandez: according to the Miami Herald, Vazquez registered pricey cars (a Porsche, a Lamborghini) and property in Hernandez’s name.
