When federal marshals executed a warrant seeking a fugitive in Aransas County, neither they nor Sheriff’s Office deputies knew it would lead to the taking down of a a meth lab and the arrest of three individuals. That is what occurred, however, Thursday, Feb. 10, according to information from Aransas County Investigator Armando Chapa.
He reported U.S. marshals arrived at a home at 104 Portia at about 10 a.m. They were seeking to arrest an individual on an outstanding federal warrant. When the home’s occupants opened the door, marshals saw bottles of rock salt and chemicals which are known to be used to make meth.
