Alexia Echevarria’s Ex-Husband Arrested For Cocaine Possession!

Former Real Housewives of Miami star Alexia Echevarria is making headlines once again but this time is due to her ex-husband. It's been reported that her ex and father of her two sons, Pedro Rosello was recently arrested for cocaine possession.

Rosello, 52, was picked up last week during a traffic stop in Florida City with two kilos of cocaine that federal agents say he admitted he was going to sell, according to a complaint filed in U.S. federal court, reports The Miami Herald.

On Nov. 7, according to the criminal complaint via Radar Online, a confidential informant tipped off police that Rosello was looking to sell five kilos of coke.

According to the official report, Rosello was willing to let the tipster inspect a kilo and would provide four more upon approval.

The next day, according to police, Rosello had two kilograms of cocaine on him when he visited a Florida City home, where he met with the informant. During the meeting, Rosello allegedly told the tipster that he could provide a total of five kilos of the drug in exchange for $28,000.

When the informant told Rosello he would pay up later, Rosello left the house with the drugs in tow, unaware that police were tracking his movements.

Officers made a traffic stop, and Rosello granted them the right to search his car, where a police dog alerted to a hidden backseat compartment that held the two kilos of cocaine, according to officials.

Rosello married the former Bravo reality star in 1992, shortly before he was arrested and sentenced to 24 years in prison for cocaine smuggling for the Willy Falcon and Sal Magluta drug organization. He served almost five years behind bars on the charge, during which time Echevarria filed for divorce, reports Radar.
