On Friday, September 29, 2017, at approximately 1400 hours (2pm), the Prowers County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jose Santos Alvarez, 36 of Lamar, CO. on a new warrant for C.R.S. 18-18-405(1), (2)(B)(I)(B) Distribution of a Controlled Substance, a Drug Felony 2 and C.R.S. 18-18-403.5(1), (2)(A) Possession of a Controlled Substance, a Drug Felony 4.

The warrant came as a result of the lengthy investigation by the Drug Task Force, which is comprised of Prowers, Kiowa, Baca, and Cheyenne County, Sheriff’s Offices.

Alvarez was brought to the Prowers County Jail, where he is being held on the warrant with a $200,000 cash only bond.
