BEEVILLE — A 32-year-old Beeville man ended up in the Bee County Jail last Thursday morning after a cleaning lady at a motel found what she suspected were drugs in his room.

Detective Roland Rodriguez said Abraham Anzaldua was staying at a room at the Executive Inn, 1601 N. St. Mary’s St., when the arrest took place.

According to a report at the Beeville Police Department, a cleaning lady noticed what she believed were illegal drugs.

Sgt. Mark Cruz went to the scene after the BPD received a call from the motel.

When Cruz asked for permission to search the room, Anzaldua agreed. Cruz then found less than a gram of methamphetamine and some drug paraphernalia.

Anzaldua was charged with possession of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone, a third degree felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor.

If convicted of the felony charge, Anzaldua could face a sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

A conviction on the misdemeanor charge could result in $500 fine.
