UNION COUNTY, NC (WCCB) – A 36-year-old man is facing multiple charges after a month long investigation into area drug trafficking.
Detectives charged Abimael Marco Alvarez-Villaseno, AKA Juan Alonso Alvarez-Villaseno or “Chato,” after seizing more than 75 grams of cocaine and more than $1,600 in cash late Thursday.
“Our drug unit has worked hard over the last several years identifying the significant sources bringing drugs into our country,” Sheriff Eddie Cathey said in a statement Tuesday. “The success they continue to see is a result of the training, partnerships, equipment and experience they bring to the table.”
Alvarez-Villaseno is charged with multiple Trafficking Cocaine offenses, Possession with Intent to Manufacture, Sell, or Deliver Cocaine, and Possession of a Controlled Substance in a Prison or Jail. He is currently being held under a $1 million secured bond.
