ROCKY RIVER, Ohio– Two Rocky River women are facing drug charges for an investigation involving local police, the FBI and U.S. Border Patrol.

Sisters Denisa and Jonida Alicka were arrested Tuesday morning, and charged with possession with intent to distribute MDMA and marijuana. Jonida Alicka is a reserve police officer with the Linndale Police Department.

“I want to thank our law enforcement partners for their efforts during this investigation that culminated in these arrests and searches,” said Stephen Anthony, Special Agent in Charge, Cleveland Division of the FBI. “These defendants will no longer benefit from harming others by selling drugs, and Jonida Alicka will no longer endanger the very community she swore to protect.”

According to the FBI Cleveland Division, the women made multiple sales of MDMA, as known as Molly or ecstasy, and pot from their homes and cars between September 2014 and March 2016.

Jonida Alicka got the MDMA from her boyfriend, who lives in Canada, the FBI said. Denisa Alicka would drive to Michigan to get drugs from her boyfriend, Rinald Turhani, and his friend, Leka Konini.

Turhani was arrested by the Detroit FBI, but Konini remains on the loose.
