On Friday, October 27 in the afternoon two Devine PD officers located suspicious persons at Driscoll Public Library in downtown Devine. Two suspects were soon arrested outside the library, and a large amount of meth was recovered.
“The officers located the male and female subjects in the computer room of the library, and asked them to go outside, where they were interviewed. During a check for weapons, the male reached into his pocket and pulled out a meth pipe and tried to conceal it in his hand as the officer began to pat him down,” said Devine PD Lieutenant Chris Andrews.
“During the search of the two individuals, a large package containing approximately 12 grams of meth was recovered in a bag inside the female’s jacket pocket, and another smaller 2-gram package that was measured, weighed, and packaged for sell was found on the male,” according to Lieutenant Andrews. “The officer also recovered a small digital scale which was found in the male’s jacket pocket as well.”
“In the range of surveillance cameras several people entered the computer room within a short period of time, where the couple was, and then immediately departed from the library,” Lieutenant Andrews adds. “This was a large quantity of meth. The street value of the meth recovered was estimated at roughly $600-$800.”
A female subject was booked into Medina County Jail and charged with possession of a controlled substance PG1 (4-200 grams) and a $25,000 surety bond was set. In addition, a male subject was booked into Medina County Jail for possession of a controlled substance PG 1 (1-4 grams), and a $25,000 surety bond was set.
Both remained in jail as of this past Monday.
