United States Attorney Sean P. Costello of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Alvie Mark Waltman, 48, of Mobile, was sentenced today for his participation in a conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine. In January of 2021, Waltman pled guilty to the conspiracy charge.
According to documents filed in connection with his guilty plea, Waltman was identified during an investigation that began with the arrest of one of the members of the conspiracy on I-10 by the Saraland Police Department. Police found methamphetamine and a gun in his vehicle. Through undercover work and an analysis of that subject’s phone, Waltman was identified as a member of the distribution network. Waltman provided $4,730 in cash to the cooperating co-conspirator to purchase additional methamphetamine for Waltman to distribute in Mobile. Waltman was arrested when he attempted to take possession of nine ounces of methamphetamine. Waltman was advised of his rights and he agreed to make a statement to investigators, admitting his involvement in the conspiracy.
United States District Court Judge Terry F. Moorer imposed a sentence of 108 months imprisonment, and ordered that Waltman serve a five-year term of supervised release when he is released from custody. Waltman was also ordered to pay a mandatory special assessment of $100. No fine was imposed.
The case was investigated by the Saraland Police Department, the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office and Homeland Security Investigations. It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
