A Bexar County woman will have a warrant issued for her arrest after a local traffic stop yielded a cache of illegal narcotics on Wednesday, May 26. A Frio County deputy effected a traffic stop on the driver of a 2014 Nissan Altima in Pearsall last week; a report on the case indicates that the deputy noted a smell of marijuana coming from the car. The driver has been identified as 43-year-old Angel Ramirez of Bexar County and her passenger as 24-year-old Christopher Custer of Pearsall. Frio County dispatchers verified that Custer was wanted on a warrant out of La Salle County. A search of the sedan uncovered drug paraphernalia that included a grinder, rolling papers, a glass pipe, scale, and clear bags traditionally used for narcotics packaging.
Deputies also discovered marijuana and methamphetamine that the couple had allegedly attempted to conceal in the vehicle. Martinez’ car was seized and towed to the county yard on the north side of town. Custer faces drug paraphernalia charges; Martinez will face a state jail felony charge for possession of a controlled substance and two Class C misdemeanor charges for possession of drug paraphernalia and not having a valid driver’s license.
