DATE/TIME: Wednesday, September 21, 2022, 10:00 a.m. 

INCIDENT: Fentanyl Overdose Murder 

LOCATION: 5600 block of Stanton Avenue, Highland 

SUSPECT(S): Alfred Urrea, a 18-year-old resident of Bloomington

VICTIM(S): Adrian Alloway, a 18-year-old resident of Highland 

SUMMARY: On August 23, 2022, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department's Gangs/Narcotics Division's-Overdose Response Team (ORT) responded to the drug overdose death of Adrian Alloway. Investigators identified Alfred Urrea as the suspect. Upon completion of the investigation, to include autopsy results establishing Alloway's cause of death to be acute fentanyl toxicity, the case was presented to the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office and murder charges were filed. On September 21, 2022, Alfred Urrea was arrested for murder and booked into custody at Central Detention Center. 

In February 2021, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department created a pilot program in the response to the growing epidemic of overdose deaths from opioids. In July 2022, a full-time team was created, and additional resources were dedicated to the team. The team consists of investigators from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department and the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office, Bureau of Investigation.  

Drug trafficking organizations are producing counterfeit pharmaceutical pills containing fentanyl and putting fentanyl in drugs like cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine. Due to this trend, we are seeing an unprecedented rise in drug overdose deaths in San Bernardino County and across the country, especially with our youth.
