43-year-old Joe Luis Alarcon of Plainview was arrested on Monday, June 7th for narcotics and firearm offenses.

On that day, Plainview Police responded to 815 Oakland Street after they received reports of 2 suspicious men. The 2 men were suspected of stealing property. Whether or not either of the men actually were in the act of stealing anyone's property was not specified in police reports.

The officers attempted to identify the men, and Alarcon is said to have given the officers a fake name. Shortly afterwards, officers discovered that Alarcon had a warrant for his arrest for a parole violation.

Alarcon was arrested, and afterwards, police located large amounts of marijuana, methamphetamine and a handgun inside his vehicle. They also located an ID that belonged to someone else.

Alarcon was arrested for the warrant as well as multiple offenses including Fraudulent Use or Possession of Identifying Information, Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Marihuana five pounds or less, and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon.

Plainview Police said that "through quick response and diligent police work by our officers, a repeat offender is off the streets along with a firearm and narcotics."
