On July 11, 2016, Ramirez-Aldava was arrested while traveling to a deal in Manchester where he planned to sell approximately 10 pounds of meth to an undercover Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) officer for $85,000, police said.

Police seized 4.5 kilograms on Ramirez-Aldava's person, and they also discovered another 1.7 kilograms at his business, El Patron Sports Bar and Grill in Manchester.

Ramirez-Aldava is likely to be deported from the United States after completing his federal sentence, court documents read.
