FLORESVILLE -- David Richard Marroquin, 44, and his son, 21-year-old David Richard Marroquin Jr., both of Floresville, are out on bond following their arrests Aug. 17, according to Wilson County Jail records. Each was charged with manufacture and delivery of less than 1 gram of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1.
According to Chief Deputy Johnie Deagen of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies visited the Marroquins’ home on F.M. 1303 approximately four miles northwest of Floresville in response to an anonymous tip related to narcotics activity. When they arrived, Deagen said deputies allegedly found the younger Marroquin “experimenting with making [counterfeit] $20 bills,” and charged him with forgery of money.
Deagen also said deputies found evidence that the father and son were manufacturing methamphetamine in the home.
The Marroquins were transported to the Wilson County Jail. Records indicate the elder Marroquin was released after posting $9,000 bond, while the younger posted a total of $23,000 bond and was released.
