SEGUIN - Police say they found narcotics in a child's dresser while executing a search warrant Wednesday night.

Seguin Police Detective Sgt. Victor Pacheco said when officers searched a home in the 700 block of Mitchell around 9:45 p.m. they found crack cocaine in the bedroom of one of the children.

"The 0.6 grams of crack cocaine was located inside a dresser drawer belonging to one of the children residing there," he said.

Pacheco said that two children - ages 5 and 6 - lived in the residence but were not home at the time of the search.

"During the investigation officers found that possibly children resided there and it was apparent children lived there during the search, but they were not at the residence at the time we executed the warrant," he said adding that Child Protective Services has been contacted.

In the home officers also found a number of other illegal drugs and items for possible distribution, Pacheco said.

"During the search 11.93 grams of cocaine, 2.5 oz marijuana, and $982 in US currency was located throughout the house along with other instruments used for packaging and selling narcotics," he said.

Joshua Espinoza, 26, was arrested and charged with manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance penalty group 1 between 4-200 grams, delivery of marijuana between a quarter of an ounce and 5 pounds in a drug free zone and child endangerment.

    Why is it that these big-bad dudes seem to always have biblical names like Joshua, Jesus etc., when they seem to have absolutely no knowledge of the Bible?

    Hopefully this "good citizen" won't get off because they didn't specifically ask permission to search something.
