Saleswoman, Boyfriend Held on Bail for Allegedly Selling Cocaine at Cosmetics Counter

A 26-year-old cosmetics saleswoman and her boyfriend accused of selling cocaine over the counter at a pharmacy were ordered held on bail at their arraignment.

A judge ordered 26-year-old Luis Ledesma held on $25,000 cash bail, and 27-year-old Enery Fernandez held on $5,000 cash bail after pleading not guilty at Tuesday's arraignment.

Police say customers would call Ledesma on a cell phone and he would send them to the cosmetics department at a local Walgreens where they would meet his girlfriend, Fernandez.

Detective Sgt. John Arahovites says Fernandez would then take customers to a private area in the store where a drug transaction would take place.

Lawyers for the defendants questioned the strength of the district attorney's case.
