SAN JUAN, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Seven people are in custody after the San Juan Police Department busted a suspected drug house. Surveillance led investigators to a home on Sunset Drive.
Four cars were pulled over after they left the home. All of them had either drugs or money inside. An undercover agent bought a small amount of marijuana from the home.
Investigators confiscated about $14,000 in all.
"To us, a street-level dealer is the ones that are taking in the stolen property from all these burglars," said Rolando Garcia of the San Juan Police Dept. "Taking all the property the persons that are addicted to it. And a lot of people think that marijuana isn't a bad drug. It's not anything, but it does have a direct impact on our crime here in town."
San Juan Police is familiar with the home. It was busted for drugs in 2012 and again for cocaine and marijuana three weeks ago.
