At the United States District Court in San Francisco, Alejandro Alvarez, 46, of San Francisco was convicted of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine by a federal jury.
Officers with the San Francisco Police Department learned that an individual who went by the name “Chewy” was selling heroin and other drugs. Eventually officers developed enough evidence to execute a search warrant on Alvarez’s apartment at which time they recovered about 65 pounds of methamphetamine valued at more than $1.5 million when sold in retail quantities. Alvarez’s stash contained more than five million individual doses.
San Francisco Police Department also recovered over $46,000 in bulk cash, ledgers that detailed drug deals and pricing, several pounds of suspected heroin and other indicia of drug trafficking.
