A San Antonio man has been taken into custody on felony drug charges after he was found in possession of a cache of illegal narcotics on Tuesday, October 4.
Pearsall police were dispatched to Trevino Street after reports were made that 41-year-old Frank Sing had barricaded himself inside the home and had a handgun.
According to a report on the case, police arrived at the home to find a window air conditioning unit had been placed on the ground outside the residence. The appliance was still functioning, officers said.
Police entering the residence, however, found it unoccupied.
Sing was seen walking quickly across the street and allegedly ignored officers who were ordering him to stop.
Responding officers were able to stop Sing on Liza Street and a subsequent search revealed that he was carrying several bags used for packaging narcotics, three cell phones and a tablet. Sing’s trouser pocket held a container with several bags of methamphetamine and cocaine as well as over $1,100 in cash.
The narcotics tipped the scales at 31 grams of cocaine and 16 grams of methamphetamine.
“This amount of narcotics tells us one thing, that he is selling drugs in the community,” Police Captain Michael Guerrero said.
Sing was arrested and transported to the Frio County Jail without further incident; he faces two second-degree felony charges for manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance and a state jail felony charge for evading arrest or detention with a previous conviction.
