A Dilley woman landed behind bars last week after Frio County sheriff’s deputies discovered methamphetamine packaged for sale in her home.
Deputies have reported that an investigation was launched into possible drug sales following several complaints regarding high-volume traffic at the home, which they describe as a sign of criminal activity.
According to a report on the case, deputies entered the home on Merle Street on Tuesday, November 14, and discovered drug paraphernalia on the dining room table, kitchen table and in other places throughout the home. The search revealed several bags containing methamphetamine.
The suspect in the case has been identified as Cassandra Medrano, 32, who was arrested and transported to the Frio County Jail without further incident and faces a first-degree felony charge for manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.
Child Protective Services were contacted after deputies noted ‘unfit living conditions and the lack of food,’ along with the discovery of narcotics.
“These narcotics were prepared, packaged and ready for distribution to our community,” Chief Deputy Peter Salinas said. “We hope to continue our partnership with concerned citizens who report this type of activity. We can accomplish so much more when we are united against these illegal drug traffickers.”
