SAN ANTONIO – A man was arrested Monday after running from DEA agents and Bexar County deputies as they served a search warrant at his West Side home, deputies said.

The Sheriff's Office said authorities served a warrant at Juvenal Moreno's home in the 5700 block of Ashcam Drive when, during the search, Moreno and another man ran from authorities through the back of the home.

Deputies said the men ran out with a unicorn tote bag deputies later discovered to contain 5 kilograms of methamphetamine. The men eventually ditched the bag in the backyard.

Moreno was arrested by a deputy and his K-9 partner on a street behind the home while a search for the second man was unsuccessful.

Authorities said they anticipate more arrests as the investigation progresses.
