FLORESVILLE -- An 18-year-old student at Floresville High School is awaiting a hearing before a magistrate judge following his arrest March 1.

Floresville police said that Michael Parra faces charges related to an estimated 5 pounds of marijuana, $1,523 cash, and a digital scale that officers found during a search of his home near the corner of C and South Second streets in Floresville. Sgt. Devin Keen of the Floresville Police Department said anonymous tips to the StayALERT School Safety Program hotline prompted Lt. Jesse Evins to send Keen and his K-9, Zorro, to search vehicles parked outside the school this morning. Conversations with the students who drove the vehicles led police to Parra.

Floresville Independent School District Superintendent Jerry Lee Hunkapiller assured parents that district officials are taking this situation seriously.

“In this community, we don’t tolerate [drugs],” he said. “If you do it, we’re going to catch you.”
