Area law-enforcement officers continue battling against the trafficking of illegal narcotics in Wilson County.

In Floresville, police arrested Juan Manuel Sanchez, 21, of San Antonio Sept. 27, and charged him with delivery of more than 1/4 ounce but less than 5 pounds of marijuana. This was after officers from the Floresville Police Department recovered 4.195 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop at approximately 3 a.m.

Floresville Patrolman Billy Herrera said he stopped a blue Chevrolet pickup truck on northbound U.S. 181 in front of the former Walmart store. The driver -- who was identified as Sanchez -- said he was en route to San Antonio.

Sanchez gave Herrera, fellow Patrolman Matt Redd, and Sgt. Devin Keen permission to search the vehicle. Herrera said that a damaged driver-side door panel led him to shine his flashlight into the door’s window track. There, he saw a black wrapper. Herrera reached into the door and pulled out four tubular bundles, all of which contained marijuana.

Police impounded Sanchez’s vehicle and transported him to the Wilson County Jail, where jail records indicate he was released after posting $12,000 bond.

In an unrelated case, deputies from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office also recovered illegal drugs Sept. 27. This was after information from an informant led them to obtain a warrant to search a home on West Main Street in Stockdale.

Sheriff’s Investigator Roland Treviño said that Sgt. Thomas Silvas and deputies Crystal Zoeller, Travis Beck, and James Roser converged on the home at approximately 9 a.m. When they arrived, Treviño said a man identified as 19-year-old Aaron Patric Allen of Stockdale attempted to flee the home and hide evidence, before Roser captured him. Allen was charged with possession of a controlled substance not in a penalty group.

Deputies seized surveillance equipment, methamphetamine pipes, prescription drugs, synthetic marijuana, loose medication, and baggies consistent with packaging illegal narcotics. Treviño said 34-year-old Amie Lynn James, who was in the house at the time, also was arrested and charged with three counts of possession of a dangerous drug, which included Bactrim, clindamycin, and diclofenac.

Both James and Allen were transported to the Wilson County Jail.
