FLORESVILLE -- Two area residents are in custody and a third has been cited in relation to an Aug. 26 methamphetamine bust in the Alamo Apartments off U.S. 181 Business here.

A man and woman present at the residence when the search warrant was issued were arrested and each was charged with possession of 1 to 4 grams of a controlled substance in Penalty Group I. One of the apartment's occupants, identified by police as Jennifer Murillo, was issued a citation for possession of drug paraphernalia. Information about the other suspects was incomplete as of 10 p.m.

Lt. Jesse Evins of the Floresville Police Department said anonymous tipsters reported that crystallized methamphetamine, often referred to as "meth" or "ice," was being sold from the apart-ment. A search warrant was subsequently issued.

What is right: As seen on this website, in video and print, whenever one of your townspeople speak up the mayor tells them "Sit down." This is especially true if you're not of the same bloodline or skin tone.

Small town I'm disabled and count on food stamps to eat and social security to pay my rent and utilities. Sorry to be a burden on you but I paid into the system for years. Don't judge people because they need help.

Members of the La Familia cartel running meth distribution were busted last month in New Braunfels, San Antonio, and Austin. Wonder which cartel is controlling the meth and other narco operations in Wilson County.
