According to reports in San Juan, Puerto Rico - Federal agents have seized more than $4 million worth of cocaine from a house owned by former two division champion Ivan Calderon. Drug Enforcement Administration spokeswoman Laila Rico advised news outlets that 225 kilograms (nearly 500 pounds) of cocaine were found when agents raided the house in the coastal town of Humacao.

Calderon issued a statement to WAPA-TV in Puerto Rico denying any knowledge of the drugs, stating the house was one of several investment properties he owns and he was not aware of any illegal activities there.

No information was revealed as to whether or not Calderon was renting the house to a third party, although one news outlet has disclosed that a married couple was living there.

An alleged Puerto Rican trafficker, who has been charged in Miami with smuggling cocaine into the U.S. through the Dominican Republic, was arrested earlier this week and the raid was connected to the ongoing case.
