(Marion) -- Drugs were again discovered at an area home just one year after the location was seized by the Guadalupe County Narcotics Division. Officials say a man and a woman were both arrested following the execution of three felony arrest warrants out of Bexar County. The incident involves a home located in the 9500 block of Green Valley Road in Marion.
According to narcotics agents, the first arrest was Eduardo Apodaca, Jr. The man, who had two active warrants for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle from Bexar County, was found and arrested in the driveway of the residence.
They say once he was in custody, he advised investigators that Dari Navarro was inside the residence he was pulling into.
Upon approaching the door of the home, a lady answered the door and confirmed that Navarro was inside the residence. Investigators along with uniform deputies yelled out Navarro's name when they heard a female's voice yell out from the back bedroom area saying "I'm back here."
Investigators say they advised the woman of her felony arrest warrant from Bexar County for the manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance.
Upon speaking with the woman, Navarro asked to speak to investigators and cleared the way to search certain areas of her property while protecting a room in her residence. She also reportedly handed over a clutch purse containing three ounces of methamphetamines.
Officials say "since Navarro was protecting a room of the residence from being searched by law enforcement, investigators wrote a search warrant affidavit asking for a search warrant on the entire residence along with some recreational vehicles that were located on the property." The search also recovered a stolen silver 2005 Mercedes Benz E320 out of San Antonio.
A search warrant was later granted by the Guadalupe County Attorney's Office and signed by State District Judge Bill Old. The entire residence was then searched by deputies and investigators. Auto Theft Investigator Ryan MyCue was also assisting and took control of the stolen Mercedes Benz.
The Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office says deputies have been at this same Navarro address twice for investigations of drugs and stolen vehicles, and both times has seized illegal drugs and stolen vehicles.
Both Navarro and Apodaca are charged with the manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance. Apodaca also faces charges for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
