(Seguin) -- A man and woman are behind bars after $16,000 worth of drugs were recently seized at a local home. Lt. Eddie Flores of the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Narcotics Division, says a search warrant on Wednesday, Jan. 10 at a home in the 1300 block of North San Marcos Street uncovered approximately 77 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of heroin, 82 grams of marijuana and 36.8 grams of methamphetamines.
 
Flores says the arrests were the results of a five month long investigation led by Narcotic Investigator Joshua Hernandez.
 
"Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office uniform deputies along with the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Narcotic Investigators executed the search warrant at the residence without incident. The female adult was located inside the residence in the living room with her minor child. One adult male was found standing in the front yard of the residence knocking trying to get someone to come to the door," said Flores.

Along with the drugs that were seized a loaded Smith & Wesson .38 caliber Airway revolver was also seized from the residence. An undetermined amount of cash was also found at the home.
 
The woman is identified as Katrina Amanda Torres, 27, of Seguin. The male knocking on the door has been identified as John Eric Hinson, 36.
 
Torres was arrested for an outstanding arrest warrant and charged with possession of controlled substances, the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance and on abandonment or endangerment of a child criminal negligence. Investigators say Child Protective Services was called and took custody of the child.
 
Hinson was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. He has since been released on a $200 bond. Torres remains in the Guadalupe County Jail on bonds totaling $165,000. Investigation into the seizure continues.
