Investigators told WSOC that the narcotics are worth about $100,000 and that they believe the bust curbed violent crime in the area.
"To say that this reduced the violent crime aspect pretty much all across the area, I think would be very true," Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Sgt. Danny Meyers.
Espinal, Rosario and Gomez were each charged with conspiracy to traffic in cocaine greater than 400 grams, felony possession of cocaine, trafficking in opium/heroin/opiates, possession with intent to sell/distribute marijuana, felony possession of marijuana, maintaining a dwelling, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia not for marijuana.
All three suspects received a $1,552,000 bond.
Police said they're looking for a third suspect, 21-year-old Christian Nunez, in connection with the drugs, guns and cash uncovered during the bust.
