BROWNSVILLE – The Cameron County Sheriff’s Office announced half a million dollars worth of cocaine are off the street.
Sheriff Omar Lucio announced in a press conference Friday Juan Antonio Montes Cornejo is charged with possession and distribution of a controlled substance.
The Matamoros man was topped by Cameron County interdiction deputies in Harlingen on Thursday for a traffic violation, he says. Inside the vehicle, they found 22 bundles of cocaine.
