While shopkeepers gossiped and gawked on Thursday morning and tourists milled nearby, Drug Enforcement Administration officials raided a women’s clothing store west of the Santa Fe Plaza.

Federal and local law-enforcement agents shut down Heavenly Boutique, 203 W. San Francisco St., and arrested its owner, Ashraf Nassar, 30, on a federal indictment charging him with dealing oxycodone.

    If they found 32 pounds of pot in his house back in February, why was he still out of jail, free, and selling oxycodone? Well, regardless, he's now on the hook for federal crimes, and I think Mr. Nassar is going to find that the feds won't let him off easy.

    why is nobody looking towards the landlord of this business....he should have know since the first arrest of this guy that something illegal is going on at his premisses?

    Personally I've wondered for some time how many "shops" in Santa Fe might be being used as fronts for drug smuggling/selling and money laundering?? Too many little businesses popping up all over town - many run by immigrants - many just seem suspicious.

    Federal Court. Couldn't be better. If it was a local court, they'd get the standard slap on the hand and be sent on their way. Lock the losers up for a very long time.

    'we want it nice and beautiful'...if that isn't a New Mexico Trueism, I don't know what is.

    It was the happiest store in town. Always had cookies and milk on the counter too. No wonder everyone was always giggling on the way out.
