Three men were arrested following a traffic stop by Hopkins County Deputies Tuesday night on the South Service Road at FM 2653. A search of the vehicle and surrounding area resulted in finding a clear plastic baggy with a brown substance believed to be heroin.
The baggy was located on the ground near the passenger side of the suspect’s vehicle. No one admitted to ownership of the narcotics, therefore all three were placed under arrest and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 more than 1-gram but less than 4-grams.
Arrested were Alain Gutierrez-Sanches, 19, of Brashear, Noe Gutierrez Sanchez, 22, of Brashear, and Reed Ballard, 25, of Como.
