'''Zabado''' was a right-wing Peruvian military man who fled his native land ahead of a court-martial for torturing prisoners, then met up with his cousin, a chemist from Cal Tech who is alleged to have patented a new formula for nearly pure cocaine, and is selling the drugs now in large quantities. Zabado, through his intermediary [[Charlie Glide]], set up a deal with heiress [[Lydia Sugarman]] to sell a huge amount of drugs in exchange for making money for a leveraged buyout of her late husband's business. [[James "Sonny" Crockett]] and [[Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs]] got into the deal trying to set up both Zabado and Sugarman, but Glide's assistant [[Max Rogo]] tipped them off and Crockett/Tubbs are nearly killed in an explosion. Later during the deal Sugarman (who was told Zabado was part of the cops' plan) killed Zabado via gunshot.
