Alleged Drug Dealer Taken Down in Boerne
Suspect Facing Felony Drug Charges Arrested

Lone Star Fugitive Task Force LogoBoerne – Alleged drug dealer, Alexander Marquez Pena was arrested this evening by task force officers of the U.S. Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and Boerne Police Department.

Pena, 24, was under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) for his alleged involvement in drug trafficking. After hearing evidence obtained from the investigation, a federal grand jury indicted Pena last month on charges involving possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine. An arrest warrant was issued and the DEA sought assistance from the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force to locate and apprehend Pena.

Through collaborative efforts with the Boerne Police Department, task force officers located Pena at a house in the 100 block of Aransas Pass in Boerne, TX. He was taken into custody without incident.

“This evenings arrest displayed the diligent efforts of both federal and local law enforcement officers working together to help ensure that justice was served,” said U.S. Marshal Susan Pamerleau. “We look forward to our continued relationship with our law enforcement partners for the purpose of arresting additional fugitives who are still on the run.”
