The Reagan County Sheriff’s Department brought charges against three people following the execution of a search warrant at 604 South Mississippi on December 19, 2018.
Luis Gonzalez, Jennifer Word and Carolina Perez were all charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, Penalty Grade 1, More than 1 Gram but Less than Four Grams.
That charge is a Third Degree Felony.
“We had been hearing for some time that meth was being sold from that home,” Sergeant Nick Hammer said. “We were able to get a confidential informant into the home. That gave us what we needed for a search warrant.”
Luis German Gonzalez, 37 of Big Lake, was at the house asleep on the couch when the deputies entered the home.
While the search was in progress, Caroline Perez, 48, arrived wanting to get her cell phone from inside the house which she had left charging.
Perez had told deputies that she lived in the home during a call for service on July 29, 2018. She also said Luis Gonzalez was her husband.
During the search, Perez’ property (clothing and toiletries) were located in one of the bedrooms.
Deputies found over one gram of a white substance which field tested positive for methamphetamine. The substance was located in a common bathroom in the home.
An arrest warrant was also issued for Jennifer Word, 27, who had told Deputy Blake Morrow on December 11, 2018 that she lived at the residence.
Word was listed as wanted by the Reagan County Sheriff’s Department and was arrested two days later on December 21, 2018 in Fort Stockton.
Word’s social security card, debit cards and clothing were found inside the home.
As with all criminal cases, Gonzalez, Word and Perez are all considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
