Illegal alien deported after Pickett County Sheriff’s Department drug roundup

During an undercover operation conducted by the Pickett County Sheriff’s Department and the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force, Reynaldo Alvarez illegally sold OxyContin tablets on Dec. 29, 2007, and illegally sold morphine capsules on Dec. 30, 2007. Additionally, on March 7, 2008, Reynaldo Alvarez sold cocaine. As a result of the operation conducted by the Pickett County Sheriff’s Department and HIDTA, Reynaldo Alvarez was convicted of three felonies.
On Sept. 30, 2008, Reynaldo Alvarez was released to the custody of United Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for the initiation of deportation proceedings.
Mr. Alvarez is 37 years old and was born in Mexico and is an illegal alien.
Both Sheriff Clois Brown and Assistant District Attorney General Owen Burnett worked together with ICE in Reynaldo Alvarez’s case.
Assistant DA Burnett said he wished to thank all of the members of ICE that played a role in the Alvarez case and said he appreciates the outstanding assistance given by ICE during this case and several other recent cases in Overton County.
District Attorney General Randall A. York will be working with law enforcement agencies and ICE to achieve the deportation of illegal alien drug dealers and other criminal illegal aliens. Assistant DA Burnett said that this case was one of many successful cases that resulted from the drug round-up by Sheriff Brown’s department.
Anyone with information about criminal illegal aliens can call the ICE hotline at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE or 1-866-347-2423 or call the Livingston branch of District Attorney York’s office at 823-1224.
