Imagine an auto repair shop where you can buy all sorts of drugs while you wait. Anything from meth to cocaine (and some firearms for good measure) can be purchased. Now imagine that this shop was named “Get Your Fix.”
That’s right, folks, “Get Your Fix Automotive” in Pueblo, Colorado is such a place, and owner Daniel Vasquez was arrested last week. It turns out that Mr. Vasquez has three prior feleony convictions for possession of a controlled substance in 2005, 2007, and 2008. On top of all that, Vasquez also escaped prison in 2010.
Undercover officers had Vasquez on audio and video selling 53 grams of heroin, a plastic bag full of meth, and apparently a purple handgun. There are also images of Vasquez reaching into his drawer where his heroin stash was kept, and also of a rifle with a scope mounted to the wall (in addition to a 9mm Glock found in his home).
Vasquez was arrested last Friday on two charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm. he faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
