SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) -

A man wanted on outstanding warrants for the alleged distribution of drugs in Louisiana has been arrested in Florida on similar charges.

On March 15, 2013, suspect Joseph Anthony Triguero, 37, who lived in Metairie at the time, was stopped by police on Interstate 10 in Slidell. A search of his car yielded 60 steroid pills, approximately two gallons of GBL, approximately 7 ounces of "Molly" powder or synthetic MDMA and 11 vials of suspected steroids. Detectives also seized $1,190 in cash.

Police said Triguero was transporting the drugs while working as a DJ and bouncer in Louisiana and Florida. He was arrested for possession with intent to distribute drugs and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail.

After bonding out of jail, Triguero failed to show up for his court appearance and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

This month, St. Tammany detectives learned that Triguero was living in Key West, and Florida authorities helped to locate and capture him on July 17. At the time of his arrest, police found large amounts of MDMA, PCP and marijuana in his home. He was also found to have an outstanding warrant through Miami Dade County for narcotics violations.

Triguero was booked at the Monroe County Jail in Florida on new possession with intent to distribute narcotics charges. When he bonds out of the Monroe County Jail, Triguero will be transferred to the Miami Dade Jail to satisfy the pending narcotics warrant in Miami.

Once that is resolved, he will be taken to the St. Tammany Parish Jail, where he will be booked for failure to appear in court on the 2013 drug charges.

Police said Triguero has an extensive criminal history that includes arrests for theft, aggravated burglary, narcotic violations, stalking, extortion, arson and other charges.
