Loaiza arrested on drug charges

Former MLB Pitcher Esteban Loaiza Arrested With Over 44 Pounds of Heroin Cocaine

Former MLB Pitcher Esteban Loaiza Arrested With Over 44 Pounds of Heroin Cocaine

The former 14-year big league pitcher was arrested on serious drug charges on Friday in San Diego, California. The current baseball coach, Allan Delos Reyes said he did not know Loiaza well but he recalled a visit past year by the former All-Star player.

Esteban Antonio Loaiza, 46, was arrested by San Diego County sheriff's deputies and booked into a Chula Vista jail in San Diego County on Friday.

Loaiza played for numerous teams between 1995 and 2008, starting with the Pittsburgh Pirates and concluding with his second stint with the Chicago White Sox. The market value of the drugs was estimated to be $500,000.

"He basically told my assistant that he would call back", Boggs said, "and the next thing I know, this (Monday's report) hit".

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department reported that authorities had been closely watching Loazia prior to his arrest.

Then, on Wednesday, Porter resigned after his two ex-wives said that he had abused them during their relationships. But Holderness and Willoughby say they did tell the Federal Bureau of Investigation what happened in January 2017.

Boggs said his impression was that Loaiza had been in business selling hats that were made in Mexico.

According to the sheriff's department, deputies pulled Loaiza over after spotting him driving a vehicle they believed to be involved in a drug smuggling operation, thanks to ongoing surveillance.

During a search of the vehicle, police found a "sophisticated aftermarket compartment used to hide contraband".

The 43-year-old Rivera was known as the "Diva de la Banda" and died as her career was peaking.

While that's how baseball fans recognize Loaiza's name, he's also famous for marrying singer Jenni Rivera in 2010 and appearing on her reality show, "I Love Jenni". He denied the accusations and later retracted his lawsuit.
