Deadly Fentanyl Dealer Sentenced

  • by

Dominick Kingdiamond Alvarado, the 23-year-old drug dealer from Tarzana who sold fentanyl-laced fake Percoset pills that killed two teens, was sentenced Monday to 16 years in federal prison and ordered to pay $42,271 in restitution after pleading guilty. Alvarado allegedly sold fake pills to teenagers in a mall parking lot, causing the deaths of an 18-year-old man and 17-year-old girl. Investigators say that Alvarado deceived his victims. “The two main drivers that are causing fentanyl-related deaths in our community and throughout the nation are accessibility and deception,” said DEA L.A. Special Agent in Charge Bill Bodner. “The deceptive marketing tactics used by the Sinaloa and Jalisco New Generation cartels have created a vast pool of victims who unknowingly ingested fentanyl and did not make a choice to be harmed or die.” Social media platforms have made fentanyl widely available to anyone with a smart phone and made every neighborhood an open-air market.”
