DOJ: Iranian national arrested for conspiracy to import heroine

The U.S. Department of Justice announces that it has arrested Malek Muhammad Balouchzehi of Iran for conspiracy to import and distribute heroin into the United States.

Balouchzehi a citizen of Iran, was taken into custody by Kenyan authorities expelled to the United States from Kenya on October 9, 2021. 

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said: “From thousands of miles away, Malek Balouchzehi allegedly arranged the importation of massive quantities of heroin into the United States with seemingly little regard for the devastation that highly addictive opiates cause after landing at our shores.  Balouchzehi’s expulsion to the United States is a direct result of this Office’s successful ongoing partnership with the D.E.A., and we commend the outstanding work of the agents both here and abroad who made today’s charges possible.”
