Tactical Take-down Tuesday! – Today, around 12:20 p.m., Aransas Pass Police, working with members of the DEA, served a federal search warrant at 1203 W. Yoakum Avenue. The resident, a convicted felon and known associate of the Mexican Mafia, Martin Cantu AGE 33 was taken into custody as a result of this investigation.
The investigation began when APPD received information about Cantu selling illegal narcotics in and around Aransas Pass. The investigation was assumed and directed by one of our task-force officers (TFO) assigned to the DEA. Once the information was verified and corroborated, our TFO obtained a federal search warrant for the residence.
Upon serving the warrant, investigators recovered two firearms, a large quantity of suspected crystal meth, and marijuana. Additionally, police uncovered several pieces of drug paraphernalia and US currency. Two arrests were made during the execution of the warrant.
