Jourdanton Officers continued hitting the streets to address the problem of drug trafficking and their hard work resulted in another drug arrest.
When Officer Steven Faz conducted a traffic stop late Sunday night, he detected several indicators that the driver may be involved in illegal activity.
Jourdanton K9 Officer Troy Walter and his partner Leo, along with a JPD Narcotics Officer came to assist and Leo quickly alerted on the violator’s vehicle.
Inside the vehicle officers allegedly found 19 grams of methamphetamine, a small amount of marijuana and a semiautomatic handgun.
The driver, identified as Mark Anthony Dillard, was arrested and charged with Manufacturer/Delivery of a Controlled Substance 4-200 grams, a 1st degree felony. He was also charged with Unlawfully Carrying a Weapon and Possession of Marijuana, Class A and Class B misdemeanors. Dillard was remanded to the custody of the Atascosa County Jail.
Chief Kaiser complimented each officer involved for their “excellent work in continuing to purge our streets of illegal drugs.”
