FRESNO, Texas - A search for a stolen vehicle in Fort Bend County Wednesday ended in a drug bust, authorities said.
Officers arrested Samuel Maciel, 17, and Jose Pineda, 40, on charges of manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance greater than 400 grams.
Deputies said they were at the men's home in Fresno to recover a stolen vehicle. When investigators looked in the garage, they found crystal meth, deputies said. Deputies got a warrant and recovered 8 kilograms of the drug, worth $400,000 on the street.
Deputies said they also found a stockpile of weapons, some of which were stolen, and a large amount of cash.
One of the men had been deported twice before, authorities said.
No bond was not set for Maciel or Pineda. Both men are under immigration holds.
