CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA – Chesterfield County Police have arrested two men in connection with methamphetamine distribution. 

The two men, identified as Crinmli Castaneda-Alcaraz, 21, of Dallas, Texas, and Brandon Alexis Hernandez, 18, of Houston, Texas, were the focus of an investigation into illegal drug activity in the Richmond metro area. At about 10:15 p.m. on Dec. 21, 2018, police saw the two men remove a package from their vehicle in the 6000 block of Hull Street Road. This package was later found to contain four bags of methamphetamine, which together weighed about 2 pounds. 

Castaneda-Alcaraz and Hernandez have been charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, importation of controlled substances into the Commonwealth of Virginia, and conspiracy to violate the Drug Control Act of Virginia. Both men are being held in the Chesterfield County Jail pending a court appearance. Immigration detainers were also placed on both men, who were determined to be in the United States illegally.  

Officials with the Henrico County Police Division, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement assisted with this investigation. 

This drug investigation remains active. Anyone with information should contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660
