Two Los Alamos residents were arrested late Friday night as a part of a several weeks-long drug trafficking case initiated by Los Alamos Police Investigations Unit.
Jeffrey Aslin, 45, and Krysti Hernandez, 43, were both arrested late Friday evening after a traffic stop was conducted in conjunction with arrest warrants that were issued on both subjects earlier that day.
Aslin is charged with trafficking a controlled substance (methamphetamine), conspiracy, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Hernandez is also charged with trafficking a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and conspiracy.
As of Tuesday, Detective Sgt. Oliver Morris said both are still in the Los Alamos Detention Center being held on a $20,000 cash or surety bond.
“This case is the result of weeks of investigative work by the Investigations unit, the evening of the arrest both subjects were apprehended by a night time traffic stop on Trinity Drive,” Morris said. “ Throughout this investigation, the suspects have allegedly been trafficking methamphetamine in various locations around Los Alamos and sometimes at job sites where suspect(s) may have been contracted to do work. It appears this has allegedly occurred without the knowledge of the homeowners where work was being conducted.”
Morris said Aslin and Hernandez both made their first court appearances Tuesday in front of magistrate court judge Pat Casados.
Morris said Aslin also had a bench warrant issued as well because he violated his conditions of release on a DWI back in May.
In that case, Aslin faces a Nov. 14 court date on five charges — aggravated DWI, open container, suspended license, careless driving and resisting arrest.
