A 33-year-old former Alabaster man is facing a trio of felony drug distribution charges after a Shelby County grand jury indicted him on the charges on May 4.

The grand jury during its March session returned a three-count indictment against Indianapolis resident Marcos Hueso, charging him with two counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance and one count of trafficking cocaine.

Hueso listed an address on Buck Creek Circe in Alabaster at the time of his arrest in January 2013.

The Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force arrested Hueso on Jan. 15, 2013 and charged him with the three felonies after Hueso allegedly sold drugs on two separate occasions in Pelham in 2009.

According to Hueso’s indictment, he allegedly distributed marijuana and cocaine in the parking lot of the Pelham Home Depot on Oct. 23, 2009, and allegedly distributed between 28 and 500 grams of cocaine while at Coker Park in Pelham on Oct. 30, 2009.

Unlawful distribution of a controlled substance is a Class B felony and trafficking cocaine is a Class A felony. If convicted, Hueso could face between two and 20 years in prison per unlawful distribution charge, and could face up to life in prison for the cocaine trafficking charge.

According to court records, Hueso was released from the Shelby County Jail on May 23, 2013 after posting bonds totaling $210,000.
