Stockton Methamphetamine Trafficker Sentenced to 9 Years in Prison for Selling Methamphetamine through Facebook

SACRAMENTO — Eliyen Alejandro Alarcon-Flores, 31, of Stockton, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley to nine years in prison for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.

According to court documents, Alarcon-Flores was a methamphetamine trafficker based in Stockton who sold up to 30 pounds of methamphetamine at a time. In 2021, an undercover officer arranged to purchase methamphetamine from a Facebook account that Alarcon-Flores had set up under a fake name. After law enforcement had identified Alarcon-Flores’s distribution network, officers arrested Alarcon-Flores and searched his house. During the search, officers seized 13 pounds of methamphetamine.

This case was the product of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration with assistance from the San Joaquin County Metropolitan Narcotics Task Force (METRO), the Stockton Police Department, and the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin Lee prosecuted the case.

On June 9, 2022, co-defendant Juan Jose Valenzuela-Bustamante was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
