In McAllen, three men were busted with over 500 pounds of marijuana at a home just located a short distanced from a school.
The sheriff's department is calling it a family run operation in a house located at 4122 Wichita Avenue in McAllen. Marked and unmarked police units from the Sheriff's department and Mission police surrounded the home around 10am on Thursday. Investigators spoke with the family and got consent to search the home and once inside found 35 bundles of marijuana. Officials seized three vehicles, a shotgun, a handgun and arrested Jesus Colin, Jose Colin and Jose Rafael Toledo.
The men are looking at charges of possession of marijuana in a drug free zone since a middle school is located just less than 1,000 yards away.
