Routine Traffic Stop Yields Drugs
A routine traffic stop led to the arrest of a driver who was in possession of marijuana and cocaine.
Sheriff’s Deputies arrested driver Francisco Javier Juarez during a traffic stop at the 1500 block of San Antonio, San Elizario, after Juarez failed to use his turn signal appropriately.
As the Deputy approached Juarez an odor of marijuana was detected. Four plastic baggies containing marijuana were discovered in the bed of the truck and a clear baggie of what appeared to be cocaine was found inside the truck.
Juarez was charged with Possession of Marijuana under 2 ounces and Possession of a Controlled Substance and booked into the Detention Facility yesterday evening.
