New Mexico Man In Fayette County Jail on Heroin Charges After Traffic Stop

FAYETTE COUNTY — A 25-year-old Los Lunas, New Mexico woman remains in the Fayette County Jail with bail set at $300,000 following her arrest on heroin charges.

Anais Rivera Olivas was arrested last week after an Illinois State Police trooper stopped her vehicle. According to court records, a search of her vehicle resulted in the discovery of more than 900 grams of heroin.

Olivas was initially charged with Class X felony trafficking of a controlled substance, Class 1 felony possession of more than 900 grams of heroin, Class 3 felony trafficking of a controlled substance and Class 4 felony possession of a controlled substance.

The Class X felony charge has since been reduced to a second Class 1 felony charge of possessing more than 900 grams of heroin.

Bail for Olivas has been set at $300,000. A preliminary hearing and first appearance with her court appointed attorney is scheduled for January 4, 2019, in Fayette County court.
