Police say that three illegal immigrants have been charged following an investigation into a cocaine trafficking operation in Fredricksburg.

Police charged 31-year-old Moises Rosalio-Ortega with possession with the intent to distribute cocaine and transportation of cocaine into Virginia.

Fredricksburg and Stafford police raided Ortega's home and found two men there who resisted authorities. Police say Ortega brought large amounts of cocaine, with a street value of $100,000, in to the state from North Carolina.

36-year-old Juan Carlos Morales was charged obstruction of justice and assault and battery. 19-year-old Gustavo Sandoval Rojas is charged with obstruction of justice.

All three are currently being held without bond.
