On Saturday, August 31, Pleasanton Police officers flashed their lights at a car driven by Andrew Ramos, 25. By the end of the day, Ramos would be in the Atascosa County Jail.
Ramos’ vehicle bolted away from Pleasanton Police officers, leading to a short pursuit. After Ramos pulled over, the officer confiscated a loaded .22 RG Revolver and $2,220 stuffed into a sock. A drug dog confirmed the smell of narcotics on the money.
Chief Ronald Sanchez said “This is a classic example of criminal interdiction. Not all traffic stops result in drug arrests. We recover stolen property also, or in this case, illicit money and a gun. This type of active criminal interdiction is what will continue to make our streets safer.”
