An accused drug dealer is out of business after being charged for street-level dealing out of his home near Donna.

High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) task force officers officers arrested Heriberto Rodriguez Rocha late Wednesday afternoon.

The 24-year-old man is now facing marijuana and cocaine charges.

Authorities raided his Lissner Street home after receiving numerous complaints of illegal activity.

Investigators reported finding 12 baggies of cocaine and 51 baggies of marijuana.

Officers said it's important to shut down street-level drug dealing operations because they are magnets for other crimes like burglary and theft.
