TikTok Star Cooper Noriega’s alleged drug dealer arrested after he fatally overdosed



A suspect who allegedly supplied TikTok star Cooper Noriega with the illicit drugs that caused his fatal overdose has been arrested.

Recall that Cooper was found dead in a mall parking lot outside Los Angeles. Subsequent reports revealed he died from an accidental drug overdose.

TMZ reported that a California man who allegedly ran a drug trafficking operation providing same-day delivery of cocaine and fentanyl-laced pills, has been arrested and arraigned on federal narcotics charges. He was accused of supplying the drugs in a fatal fentanyl overdose.

The victim at the heart of the case is “C.N.” and Cooper’s dad confirmed the victim is Cooper.

Prosecutors told the publication that Erick Oved Estrada ran an illegal drug operation out of his Calabasas home, with one of his associates delivering fentanyl-laced oxycodone to C.N., which ultimately caused a fatal overdose.

The feds say Estrada sold fentanyl-laced pills to Arian Alani, and Alani sold them to C.N., who ingested them and died of an OD.

Prosecutors alleged that Alani texted Estrada “my boy just died yesterday,” in reference to C.N. and that Estrada “shouldn’t be selling (expletive) with fentanyl.”

The feds say Estrada and Alani are each charged with one count of distribution of fentanyl resulting in death, among other charges.

Cooper’s dad, Harold Noriega, said in a statement that he’s grateful a law enforcement investigation led to arrests and charges and the “family is very happy” with the result.
