Guadalupe County Sheriff’s officers recovered more than 1,000 of marijuana and arrested three suspects early Tuesday morning.
Deputy Eddie Flores said the suspects led them on an off-road chase after refusing to stop when officers tried to pull them over on Interstate 10 East.
Two men -- Alfredo Corona, 34, and Esteban Lopez Junior, 25 -- were arrested after they abandoned their utility vehicle when it became stuck in a creek on private property following a chase.
A woman, identified as Valerie Ann Vaqueres, of San Antonio, was also arrested.
She was in another vehicle that had been accompanying the men on I-10.
All three suspects were turned over to federal authorities and are expected to face federal conspiracy and drug possession charges.
