‘Stop-and-go traffic’ indicative of drug trade…
Four Pearsall residents were jailed last week after a police raid of their west side residence in which officers reportedly uncovered a cache of narcotics.
Pearsall police indicated in a prepared statement this week that investigators had received several tips regarding what they described as stop-and-go traffic at the home on San Marcos Street.
“This type of activity is indicative of drug trade,” Chief Peter Salinas said. “We take these tips, and all tips, seriously.”
Officers immediately opened an investigation into the activities of 55-year-old James Fehr.
On Wednesday, March 4 officers executed the search warrant and discovered methamphetamine, heroin, marijuana, pills for which none of the occupants had a prescription, and drug paraphernalia. Among the materials were bags typically used in the packaging and distribution of narcotics and used syringes, according to police.
The police report indicates the amount of methamphetamine discovered in the home warrants felony charges.
Fehr, along with 22-year-old Kaylin Trevino, 51-year-old Veronica Trevino and 44-year-old Michael Baggett were taken into custody.
Kaylin Trevino was charged with a state jail felony for the possession of methamphetamine and a Class B misdemeanor for possession of marijuana. Trevino was wanted on an active warrant on a prior arrest for drug possession.
Fehr was charged with a state jail felony for the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance; Veronica Trevino faces a charge for possession of methamphetamine.
Baggett faces two state jail felony charges for possession of methamphetamine and heroin, and a Class B misdemeanor charge for possession of marijuana.
“Once again, the citizens of the community have spoken up to take back their neighborhoods from these drug dealers who poison and destroy our youths,” Salinas said. “We are only as successful as your partnerships with this agency allow.”
