Sheriff Keith Korenek reports deputies seized about 35 pounds of marijuana and arrested a 36-year old man from the border town of Roma after the drugs were detected by the K-9 Unit.
Korenek reports that late Tuesday afternoon a deputy and a DPS trooper conducted a traffic stop on a white, Ford F-150 on Interstate 10 for a traffic violation. The Trooper asked for consent to search the pickup truck. He asked for the help of the K-9 Unit and Fayette County Sheriff’s Deputies.
The search of the pickup found the marijuana under fabricated seat in the rear. Thirty-six year old Eden Garza-Gonzalez of Roma is now facing felony marijuana possession charges and remains in the Fayette County jail.
