    Lehigh Acres man arrested in arms-dealing case

    By Rachel Myers

    An arms dealer operating in Lee County has been arrested, according to sheriff’s deputies.

    Alberto Alvarez, 46, of 3814 West 15th St. in Lehigh Acres, was arrested on two felony charges of possession of short-barreled weapons and/or machine guns and one charge of altering the identification on a weapon by removing the serial number.

    A report prepared by an undercover deputy indicates an investigation involving federal agents with the bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms had been watching Alvarez for at least a month.

    When undercover officers first talked to Alvarez, he told them he wanted to sell them several 223 caliber rifles and silencers. He provided photos of the weapons and negotiated the price — $10,000. On April 13, undercover officers conducted a controlled buy of the weapons at a Wal-Mart parking lot on Lee Boulevard.

    When money had exchanged hands, officers arrested Alvarez.

    He is being held in Lee County Jail without bond.

    Bad people are everywhere. Not surprising to find yet another specific case of Wal-Mart parking lots being used for anything and everything.

    Well, look on the bright side: this action was much cheaper than Ruby Ridge, for much the same offense.

    That's what I'm saying. Hence the R.R. reference.

    Though, this guy knew the rules and was operating outside them. You make your ante and take your chances, when you know the consequences of an action.

    Two things in life to stay away from...

    1. WalMart parking lots...

    2. BATFE agents...

    Stay armed...beware of #'s 1 & 2...

    Stay armed...stay safe!
