2 arrested in drug raid of Kendall home

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Two people were arrested in a drug raid at a home in Kendall.

Miami-Dade Police arrested a husband and wife, Wednesday morning, who were both charged with armed drug trafficking. Police said 47-year-old Paul Labrador and Charice Lynn Labrador have been married for over 20 years.

Thanks to an anonymous letter to the Crime Suppression Team, over two dozen guns, drugs and $20,000 in cash were found in 5001 S.W. 98th Ave.

Officials went to the house, that morning, and found weapons in plain view. They then called for back up from the narcotics division who then executed a search warrant and found the drugs.

A total of 32 weapons were found in the house, among them were 13 rifles and an Uzi. Police also said they found drugs including a quarter kilo of cocaine, 983 grams of marijuana, 39 Oxycontin tablets and 464 Xanax tablets.

Police are thankful for receiving the anonymous tip. “Why does an individual have to have 32 guns?” said Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta. “Nineteen firearms, one being an Uzi, which is a very powerful firearm and automatic weapon. Kudos goes to the detectives, but we mainly have to express our thank you to that anonymous person who brought us that letter. Without that person, this would have never happen. This individual would have continued putting drugs into our streets, and obviously, hurting our children.”

The couple remains in jail, held without bond.
