 Five Santa Fe residents were indicted yesterday by the US Attorney's Office for allegedly trafficking Oxycodone.

Among them are Ashraf Nassar, who owns Heavenly Boutique, a high-end jewelery and clothing store on San Francisco St. just off the Plaza. Yesterday, the Drug Enforcement Administration raided the shop, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican.

Nassar, who this past January hit the headlines when his cousin, Musa Nassar, fired a handgun at a moving car near Heavenly Boutique on West San Francisco Street, allegedly participated in distributing Oxycodone across Santa Fe County from December 2012 to this month.

In February, city police found 32 pounds of marijuana at Nassar's home.

Nassar, 30, is charged in the conspiracy along with Santa Fe residents Phillip Anaya, 37, Krystal Holmes, 27, Sarah N. Romero, 34, and Daniel Trujillo, 31. Each are charged with 16 counts and face up to 20 years and prison and a $1 million on each Oxycodone charge.
