Narcotics investigators working Friday night in Schertz arrested a woman and man who reportedly had drugs in a stolen car, authorities said.
The pair is believed to be involved in attempted drug trafficking and had a small amount of marijuana in a second vehicle the male had driven to the scene of the arrest, Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Narcotics Lt. John Flores said Monday in a written statement and interview.
“The dope was found underneath the seat in his truck,” Flores said.
Members of the Guadalupe County Narcotics Unit conducted an operation about 11:50 p.m. Friday in the 16000 block of the Interstate 35 North access road in Schertz, according to the written statement. Investigators encountered a woman in a 2019 Toyota Camry reported stolen out of San Antonio, the statement read.
Investigators found the pair in possession of $2,125 in cash and nearly 2 grams of meth, Flores said.
