The Cullman Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET) worked with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to capture Juan Carlos Jimenez-Alcarez, 32, of Mexico. He is charged with trafficking methamphetamine after a two-month investigation.

Authorities say Jimenez-Alcarez sold agents large amounts of methamphetamine in Cullman County before he was arrested near Hanceville. During the arrest, authorities say they seized 1.5 pounds of methamphetamine and $3,000. When the agents went to his home, they seized an additional two pounds of meth. Authorities also found $35,000 in cash and firearms.

Jimenez-Alcarez is being held on no bond at the Cullman County Detention Center by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Investigators say Jimenez-Alcarez is in the United States illegally for the second time.
