A New York city yacht master could be arrested if he doesn’t turn himself in after his wife allegedly sold more than $2 million in cocaine, the feds said Monday.
The arrest warrant, which was obtained by the New York Post, came after New York State Police arrested Robert O. Ponce in the Bronx, where his wife, Kristin, and a nephew, David Ponce, are both believed to have been living.
The Post obtained the warrant, obtained from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Kristin Ponce had been a fugitive from justice in the United States since 2014.
She has been in custody in New York for years.
She had allegedly been arrested in March, 2015, and convicted of a drug possession charge in November.
She had reportedly sold cocaine and marijuana, along with heroin and prescription pills, to an undercover officer.
The New York Times reported in February that she had allegedly used a fake identity to make $1.7 million in drug payments and received nearly $1 million in cash from a drug dealer.
Kristins attorney, Stephen G. Kiel, said he would not comment on the warrant.
