BEEVILLE – Police Chief Joe Treviño said Mayor David Carabajal accompanied members of the Beeville Police Department’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team on June 19 on a drug raid.

Two residents of the Woodlands Apartments at 600 E. Crockett St. were taken into custody after narcotics investigators found 67 grams of synthetic marijuana, crack cocaine, assorted drug-use paraphernalia and $136 in cash.

The suspects, 22-year-old Nyisha Britton and 20-year-old Trey Thomas, were taken to the Bee County Jail.

Britton was charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, synthetic marijuana, one to four grams. That charge was from a previous warrant issued against her.

She also was charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, synthetic marijuana, four-400 grams, in connection with the June 19 raid.

That charge is a first degree felony. A conviction on that charge could result in 99 years to life in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Thomas was charged with possession of a controlled substance, crack cocaine, one-four grams. That charge is a second degree felony.

Justice of the Peace Abel Suniga set bonds totaling $30,000 on Britton and $10,000 on Thomas.

Thomas was released on bond on June 21. Britton is still in custody.

Police Chief Joe Treviño said Carabajal was invited to accompany the SWAT team during the raid.
