Two men face multiple charges, including theft, possession of controlled substances, and assault, after the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office served a narcotics search warrant last Friday in Stockdale.
Sheriff’s deputies served the warrant at a residence in the 600 block of S.H. 123 in the early-morning hours of May 6, assisted by members of the Stockdale City Marshal’s Office, Nixon Police Department, and Wilson County Pct. 3 Constable Curtis Fowler, according to Chief Deputy Clint Garza.
Taken into custody during the warrant search were:
•Adam Lopez, 58, of Stockdale — charged with manufacture or delivery of between 1 and 4 grams of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, and theft of property valued at between $2,500 and $30,000. He is currently being held on bonds totaling $70,000.
•Eric Castillo, 36, of Seguin — booked for manufacture or delivery of between 1 and 4 grams of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1, and a warrant for assault family violence with previous conviction issued out of Guadalupe County. He is currently being held on bonds totaling $90,000.
Garza said the warrant was the result of an ongoing investigation conducted by Wilson County Sheriff’s Office narcotics investigators, stemming from months of surveillance, information, and intelligence-gathering from the community and surrounding agencies.
During the search of the residence, investigators located methamphetamine, narcotics paraphernalia and packaging, along with several firearms. Also located at the scene was a 2004 Ford F250 pickup truck, reported stolen out of Guadalupe County.
The investigation continues, and more charges and arrests are imminent, Garza said.
