Posted June 2, 2016

— Police arrested two people and seized 1,500 Oxycodone pills in connection with a robbery of a pharmacy in Goldsboro on May 8.

Officials executed two search warrants Thursday for Jose Luis Fonseca, of 3708 Wayne Memorial Drive in Goldsboro, and Maria Ivett Deleon, of 328 Mobile Circle in Dudley.

Authorities said 100 Oxycodone pills and a stolen firearm were recovered while searching Fonseca’s home.

Fonseca was previously arrested during the arrest of robbery suspects, Jesus and Edgar Taledano; he was released after posting bond, and then began selling the Oxycodone pills stolen in during the pharmacy robbery, police said.

Fonseca was charged with three counts of trafficking in opiates, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

He was being held Thursday night under a $1.55 million.

Officials said 1,400 Oxycodone pills were recovered during the search of Deleon’s residence.

She was charged with trafficking opiates by possession and awarded a $150,000 secured bond.

The Goldsboro Police Department, Wayne County Sheriff’s Office and DEA Raleigh all assisted in the arrests.
