      Drug suspect throws evidence into innocent bystander's car

      Drug bust suspect Cesareo E. Almaguer allegedly threw the evidence into an innocent bystander's car

      Four men are behind bars following two drug busts in Weslaco where one man tried to throw the evidence inside another car.

      The first drug bust happened off Mile 8 North and FM 1015 around 11 a.m. Thursday.

      Weslaco police arrested Rolando Villarreal at the scene but suspect Cesareo E. Almaguer took off in a car.

      Investigators said Almaguer tried to throw drugs inside the car of an innocent bystander.

      Police arrested Almaguer and then recovered marijuana and $4,000 dollars in cash.

      The second bust took place at a home at 1923 Las Brisas in Weslaco.

      Police arrested 52-year-old Ramon Rodriguez and his 20-year-old son Ramon Rodriguez Jr.

      Authorities found marijuana inside their home.

      All four men appeared before a Weslaco municipal judge on Wednesday morning.

      Villarreal got a $2,000 personal recognizance bond while Almaguer got $40,000 dollars in bonds.

      Both Rodriguez and his son were issued $2,500 cash surety bonds.
