Frio County deputies arrested a man and recovered nearly ten grams of methamphetamine after a routine traffic stop in Moore on Tuesday, June 29.
According to a report on the case, deputies effected a traffic stop on the driver of a 2001 Toyota Corolla after he failed to stop at the intersection of FM 462 and the IH-35 east-side frontage road.
Deputies were interviewing the driver, 34-year-old Jack Gibbs of Atascosa, when the drug-detecting police canine alerted deputies to the possible presence of contraband in the vehicle.
Deputies searching the sedan discovered several bags used for packaging narcotics, a scale, two glass pipes and three bags containing marijuana that Gibbs had allegedly attempted to conceal in various compartments throughout the vehicle.
Gibbs was arrested and transported to the Frio County Jail without further incident; he faces a first-degree felony charge for possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance.
“We will continue to take these dangerous drugs off the streets of this county,” Frio Lt. Joshua Longoria said. “With the department’s commitment to enforce the law and the district attorney’s commitment to prosecute, criminals will soon learn these illegal narcotics are not welcome.”
