Lt. John Flores, who is with the narcotics division of the sheriff's office, credited the patrol officers for being the "boots on the ground" needed to make the traffic stops and arrests.

The patrol was spurred by citizen complaints and other sources of information, Flores said.

In total, police seized 10.81 grams of methamphetamine, 2.32 grams of cocaine, 1.42 grams of LSD, 3,314 grams of marijuana, 1,050.65 grams of THC edibles, 120 THC cartridges and 191.79 grams of THC wax.

Police also seized a firearm, a vehicle and more than $10,000 in cash during the operation.

Seized drug money is often used for upgrades within the sheriff's office.

The cases will be handled by the Guadalupe County Attorney's Office, according to the news release.
