SAN JOSE — A South San Jose donut shop owner has been arrested and charged with making and selling a synthetic drug — known as “pink cocaine” among its many monikers — that combines cocaine with an array of other narcotics including opioids, authorities said.

San Jose police announced Wednesday that investigators arrested 32-year-old Luis Carrillo-Moyeda last month after receiving a tip alleging “illegal narcotics manufacturing and sale operating out of a business” in the 400 block of Blossom Hill Road, near Snell Avenue.

A search of city business filings shows that Carrillo is listed as the owner of a Yum Yum Donuts franchise at the same location.

On Jan. 19, police said detectives and special-operations officers served search warrants at the donut shop and Carrillo’s home in South San Jose, and seized “various illegal narcotics, narcotics manufacturing parts, large amounts of cash, an unregistered firearm and ammunition.”

Police described the narcotics recovered as a relatively new synthetic drug made from mixing cocaine, ketamine, ecstasy, meth and opioids. Authorities said the drug is referred to by names including “Tusi,” “2C,” “pink cocaine,” “Pantera Rosa” and “Pink Panther.”

Carrillo was arraigned Jan. 24 and is scheduled to return to court March 4, according to court records. Jail records show that he is out of jail custody.

Anyone with information for investigators about the drug arrest can contact Officer Daniel Kaufman with the San Jose Police Department Metro special-operations unit at 408-277-4044 or by email at [email protected].

Tips can be left with Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at 408-947-7867 or at
