Two Atascosa County Sheriff’s investigators assigned to the department’s Narcotics Unit arrested two Atascosa County residents on April 16 after they stopped a Ford F250 pickup for a traffic violation.
The investigators were working narcotics investigations in the north end of the county when they observed a pickup truck without valid registration. While talking with the driver, the officers observed what turned out to be a small packet of Methamphetamine lying on the floorboard of the truck.
The driver was arrested and during an inventory of the truck, the investigators located nine small packages containing suspected Heroin. The driver, David Guerra, 30, of the Primrose Subdivision was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, to wit: Methamphetamine. The truck’s passenger, Ralph Vasquez Morales, 50, of Shalimar was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, to wit: Heroin with intent to deliver.
Sheriff David Soward stated that the bond on Guerra was set at $10,000 and bond on Morales was set at $80,000 by Justice of the Peace Orlando Carrasco.
