SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, Calif. – The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office has filed a murder charge against Alfred Urrea (18) of Bloomington, for allegedly selling and distributing the opioids that led to the August 23, 2022 death of Adrian Alloway (18) of Highland.

Defendant Urrea has been charged with one count of PC 187 – Murder.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Overdose Response Team was established in February 2021, in response to the growing epidemic of overdose deaths from opioids. The Overdose Response Team includes investigators from the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office, Bureau of Investigation.

The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office is committed to prosecuting these crimes using all available county, state and federal resources. In doing so, our Office seeks to bring closure to the victim’s families, and accountability to illicit drug dealers. In response to Urrea being the second defendant in San Bernardino County to face murder charges stemming from a fentanyl poisoning, District Attorney Jason Anderson states, “In cases such as this, where murder is alleged, we believe we can prove beyond a reasonable doubt the dealer knowingly understood the dangers of fentanyl, and still chose profits over human life when supplying drugs to the victim.”

Defendant Urrea plead not guilty at his arraignment on September 26, 2022, with bail currently set at $1,000,000.00. Defendant Urrea’s next hearing date is set for a pre-preliminary hearing September 27, 2022 at 8:30am at San Bernardino County Superior Court department S4.
