SASPAMCO -- Two men face federal charges following a multi-agency drugs and narcotics bust here July 2.

Jesse Matthew Gamez was arrested after personnel from agencies including the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, the 81st Judicial District Attorney's Office, and various federal agencies executed a search warrant of his home on Underpass Lane off C.R. 128. A second search at a home on F.M. 775 near the intersection of C.R. 128 led to the arrest of Henry Trinidad Jr.

As a result of the searches at the two locations, officials seized methamphetamine, marijuana, multiple weapons, body armor, and approximately $10,000 in cash. Trinidad was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond, while Gamez remains in federal custody. DPS confirmed that the investigation continues and that other suspects are being sought.

Eric, You got it! We should increase pay for deputies, BUT NOT ACROSS THE BOARD to include clerks, commissioners, and judge.
