An illegal immigrant from the Dominican Republic is behind bars, facing charges of trafficking drugs and 
using false documents after a raid in Dorchester this week, 
officials said.

Hector Arias, 38, is due to be arraigned in Dorchester District Court today on charges of trafficking heroin, trafficking cocaine, possession of a false driver’s license, identity fraud, and conspiracy to violate drug laws.

Additionally, immigration 
officials placed a detainer on Arias for an immigration violation, prosecutors said.

The others arrested in the raid were Alexis Rosa-Hernandez, 33, on trafficking cocaine, and conspiracy to violate drug laws charges; Jilliann Rabassa-Collazo, 24, for trafficking heroin and trafficking cocaine; Leondro Astico-Ruiz, 30, for conspiracy and knowingly being present where heroin is kept; Rafael Lugo-Soto, 31, for possession of heroin and cocaine with intent to distribute; Luice Alicea-Rodriguez, for conspiracy and knowingly being present where heroin is kept; and Nelso Ruiz-Carvajal, 39, for conspiracy and knowingly being present where heroin is kept.
