Suspected SF Meth Dealer Facing Federal Charges

August 28, 2014, 9:59 PM by Ben Dunsmoor

Suspected SF Meth Dealer Facing Federal Charges
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

He ran from police for more than a week earlier this year. On Thursday 32-year-old Larry Zamora Junior appeared in court on federal charges for dealing more than a pound of meth.

Zamora ran from authorities in January when officers raided his downtown Sioux Falls apartment. Zamora is now facing a federal charge of conspiracy to distribute meth which carries a minimum penalty of ten years in federal prison and a maximum of life.

Zamora was arrested in February following a drug raid at his apartment underneath a car dealership near the 10th Street viaduct in Sioux Falls. Zamora ran from the raid but authorities caught up with him a week later.

Court documents filed in state court say Zamora was receiving large shipments of methamphetamine and selling it out of his basement apartment - as well as the mobile homes located in the trailer court underneath the 10th Street viaduct.

Zamora State Court Documents

The federal indictment Zamora now faces says he was distributing more than 500 grams of methamphetamine, which equals more than a pound of the drug.

State documents say an informant told Sioux Falls Police earlier this year that Zamora had at one time received as much as two kilograms of meth in the mail and was selling it out of his basement apartment.

Zamora is still facing drug possession charges in state court.

He's currently being held at the state prison in Springfield because at the time of his arrest he was on parole for a previous drug charge.
