Deputies searching for fugitive drug suspect
JEFFERSON COUNTY - The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Fugitive Warrant Division is asking for help in finding a man investigators call a fugitive drug dealer they say has altered his appearance and gone into hiding.
Watch KFDM News at 6 for more on the story, including information about the drug suspect and Santa Muerte.
The warrant division is looking for Daniel Ignacio Alameda, 30, 5'3, 150 pounds, shaved hair, brown eyes, tattoos on his left shoulder of Santa Muerte and a pit bull, and one on his abdomen that says Alameda.
Deputies say Alameda is aware of the two outstanding warrants for Delivery of a Controlled Substance with a $300,000 bond.

Anyone with information of Mr. Alameda's location should contact Crime Stoppers at (409) 833- TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 dollars for information leading to the arrest of Alameda and any other wanted fugitive.
