A 24-year-old man was arraigned on two felony drug charges Wednesday afternoon.
A search by Killeen police of a bag Eduardo Sanchez was carrying with him on the night of March 5 contained, among other items, a brown paper bag and black zipper case, according to an arrest affidavit. The paper bag fell onto the floor, revealing a small bag that contained a “clear crystal-like substance. The zipper bag also contained plastic bags with the same substance.
A field test kit of the substance showed a positive result for presence of methamphetamine, the affidavit stated.
The total amount of the methamphetamine was about 31.1 grams with packaging.
A second arrest affidavit stated on March 17, Sanchez was arrested on charges of criminal trespassing and theft, and transported to the Killeen jail.
A search of a plastic Walmart bag in Sanchez’s possession contained small plastic bags of a “clear crystal-like substance.” The substance again tested positive for methamphetamine.
The total amount was about 3.8 grams.
Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin arraigned Sanchez on one charge of possession of methamphetamine in an amount of more than 4 grams, but less than 200 grams in the March 5 incident.
Sanchez also was charged with possession of methamphetamine in an amount of more than 1 gram, but less than 4 grams in the March 17 incident.
Sanchez’s total bail was set at $60,000.
Potvin also arraigned Brittney Aloni Tobar, 25, on a charge of possession of methamphetamine, less than 1 gram. Tobar was with Sanchez during the March 17 incident, according to an arrest affidavit.
