DEA CNET Bust Mexican National Suspected Dope Fiend Near Hanceville

3.5 Pounds of Meth, Three Weapons & Two Vehicles Seized

Over a two month period, a Mexican national illegally in the United States sold agents with the Cullman Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) large amounts of methamphetamine.

These transactions transpired in Cullman County.

On Thursday, January 4, 2018, these agents with CNET and the DEA concluded their two-month investigation with an arrest of:

CARLOS JIMENEZ-ALCAREZ (32) of the Country of Mexico

• Jimenez-Alcarez is charged with Trafficking in Methamphetamine.

This is the second time Jimenez-Alcarez has been arrested in the USA. It is also the second time he has re-entered the United States illegally.

Jimenez-Alvarez could well be a poster boy for the rationale behind building the Trump Wall.

Jimenez-Alvarez was arrested just off US Highway 91 near Hanceville. During the arrest, agents seized 1.5 pounds of Methamphetamine, approximately $3,000 in cash, and a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado.

With further investigation, agents traveled to the home of Jimenez-Alcarez. At that location, agents seized an additional two pounds of methamphetamine, approximately $35,000 in cash, a 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe LT, a Bersa 40 caliber semi-auto, a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun, and a Century Arms semi-auto.

In total, the Jimenez-Alcarez arrest has led to the seizure of 3.5 pounds of meth with a street value of $200,000, $35,000 cash, two vehicles, and three guns.

Jimenez-Alcarez is currently held in the Cullman County Detention Center with no bond. He is being held with no bond amount by the Department of Homeland Security.

Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry had these thoughts after the arrest:

“We are a very proactive sheriff’s office, and we are always trying to prevent these drug dealers from coming into our community to sell their drugs. I’m grateful that we intercepted this large amount of drugs before it was able to make it into our county. I also believe we are continuing to send the message if you come to Cullman County to sell your drugs you will be arrested and you will be held accountable for your crime.


I would also like to thank CNET and the DEA for the great job they did in this case.”
