Willmar, Minn., man sentenced to 10 years in prison for methamphetamine sale

ALEXANDRIA — Alfredo Hernandez Jaquez, 35, of Willmar, was sentenced Friday in Douglas County District Court to more than 10 years in prison for selling methamphetamine.

According to Douglas County Attorney Chad Larson, Jaquez was sentenced to 125 months in prison following a conviction for first-degree controlled substance crime.

The conviction stems from an arrest in January last year when Jaquez was charged with possession of methamphetamine in excess of 10 grams.

Agents had obtained information that Jaquez was bringing “large amounts of methamphetamine” from Willmar to sell in Alexandria, according to a press release from Larson.

Besides the drugs, more than $3,400 in cash, a semi-automatic assault rifle and Jaquez’s vehicle were seized during the investigation.

According to the criminal complaint, Jaquez is a confirmed member of the Latin Kings gang, a convicted felon and a defendant in a pending third-degree controlled substance crime prosecution in Renville County.
