Palo Pinto County bust yields 6 pounds of meth, 19 arrests

(Continued)

Mercer said the long nature of the investigation might have led some people to believe that area law enforcement was not dealing with the local drug problem. However, Mercer was pleased with the results.

He said this drug organization is “the primary source for methamphetamine in the county and certainly was something that needed to be done. We’ve done this many times over the years and it seems like it always flares back up with another group. But we can’t stop fighting.”

In Thursday’s roundup, the following individuals were arrested as a result of the investigation:

• Cesar Fernando Alvarez-Hernandez, 27, of Dallas, possession of controlled substance over 400 grams, no bond.
