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.”

A K9 is only as good as his handler. The dog is a tool, just like a police car, radio or gun. If the officer doesn't use it right then he gets in trouble. If he uses it right, he gets the credit. Good job, Sgt. Keen!

You are absolutely correct, 4thGT. My fear has always been that if pot is legalized, then the drug dealers would start killing each other because of the competition. You buy from one pusher one week, than another pusher another... More ›
