Eagle Ford: Four face drug charges
FLORESVILLE -- Four suspects are facing charges of manufacture and delivery of more than 4 grams, but less than 200 grams, of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1 and possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana, after being arrested by officers from the Floresville Police Department here Feb. 2.
•Fallon Jonia Poth, 30, of Schertz
•Steven Olivares, 37, of San Antonio
•Jason DeYoung, 24, of Schertz
•Michael Herbert Burton, 35, of San Antonio, who also is charged with possession of less than 1 gram of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1.
According to a report filed by the arresting officer, Floresville Patrolman Matt Redd, the four were spotted traveling in a vehicle northbound on U.S. 181 at approximately 10:15 p.m. Redd, who reported that he was traveling southbound on U.S. 181, said that he observed their vehicle pull into a motel parking lot without signaling as the officer turned around. He followed the vehicle into the parking lot and began investigating.
Fellow Floresville officers Sgt. Devin Keen and Patrolman John Muñoz responded to assist and the officers were given consent to search the vehicle. Inside, they found syringes, 3.8 grams of suspected marijuana, and 8.5 grams of a substance believed to be black tar heroin. These items will be verified by further testing.
Since no one admitted to possessing the narcotics, all four were arrested, said Floresville Lt. Chad Clark. Muñoz transported each suspect to the Wilson County Jail individually. Upon booking Burton, a small bag containing 0.1 grams of cocaine was found in his wallet.
As of press time Feb. 4, DeYoung and Poth had been released from the jail after each posting a total of $20,600 bond. Information about the bonds for Olivares and Burton, who both still were in custody, was unavailable.
