Staff Report


First Judicial District Judge T. Glenn Ellington agreed to reinstate probation for Alejandro Gonzalez Sept. 11 in Santa Fe District Court and added a condition that he enter and complete a 60-day inpatient substance abuse treatment program.


Gonzalez was originally arrested in December 2016 in Los Alamos and charged in Los Alamos Magistrate Court with trafficking a controlled substance, distribution/possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, tampering with evidence, possession of a controlled substance, driving under the influence, no driver’s license and no operating tail lights. During booking, Los Alamos Detention Center officers located 23 individually bagged bundles of heroin concealed in his anal cavity.


Gonzales was bound over in January to District Court on those charges but only the trafficking and driving under the influence were filed in District Court. He was sentenced to five years of supervised probation but failed to report to probation between May and July 13 when Judge Ellington declared him an absconder and issued a warrant for his arrest.
