Federal investigators have seized a suspected Kansas City Plaza drug dealer’s luxury car that turns out be owned by former Kansas City Royals catcher Benito Santiago .
Last week, Jacques Lavigne pleaded guilty to running a multi-million dollar cocaine operation for the last 20 years around the Plaza area. According to prosecutors, Lavigne imported up to 154 pounds of cocaine into Kansas City between 2002 and 2007.
Federal and state records show the 2003 Mercedes Benz that Lavigne drove is owned by Santiago. The former major league catcher has not been charged in the high end cocaine operation.
