Fernando Hernandez, 30, Vacente Vazquez, 24, and Jose Capos, 30, were stopped on Muddy Bottoms property by park security due to park violations. The park security observed a glass smoking device inside of the vehicle at which point the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office was contacted.

According to the police report, “Upon arrival the officers noticed a “broken lightbulb containing white residue inside of the vehicle.” It continued to read that, “ A pat down of the front seat passenger revealed a plastic pill bottle containing baggies of suspected methamphetamine.” Further search of the vehicle revealed a “white styrofoam cup containing more baggies of methamphetamine.”

All suspects denied ownership of the methamphetamine and the glass smoking device. 

The suspects were then charged with possession of a schedule 2 controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia and taken into custody and later transported to BDCC.
