Dominican national jailed in US for drugs, weapons and passport fraud

The ICE said the sentence resulted from an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

It’s reported that in October 2012, Alberto Feliz Garcia, 34, pleaded guilty to “being a previously convicted felon in possession of a firearm, being an alien in possession of a firearm, passport fraud, and possession with intent to distribute heroin.”

According to investigators, on the morning of October 17, 2011, HSI special agents, “armed with a federal arrest warrant for passport fraud, encountered Garcia at his home in Boston and arrested him in a bedroom on the second floor.

“The room was searched and the agents recovered a Fabrique Nacional 5.7 semi-automatic pistol loaded with 19 rounds of armour-piercing ammunition.”

HSI special agents noted that the serial numbers on the pistol were “obliterated.”

ICE said Garcia later consented to a search of his home, where special agents recovered 517 grams of heroin, 45 grams of crack cocaine, 32 rounds of 9mm ammunition and $12,040 in cash.

Following the completion of his federal sentence, ICE said Garcia will be deported back to the Dominican Republic.(
