Patrolman Makes Second Drug Bust Of Holiday Weekend

For one state highway patrolman, it's the second drug bust in a little more than two days.

Patrolman James Ivory pulled over a vehicle for a traffic violation Saturday afternoon on I-10 in Harrison County.

Ivory checked the occupants driver's license, which officials say showed they were wanted by the U-S Marshall's service.

Authorities say the driver, 25 year old Gustavo Delosreyes, consented to a search.

A police canine then sniffed out two and a half kilos of cocaine hidden inside a secret compartment.

"To me personally, it's only five pounds of cocaine, but that's five pounds that won't go to somebody's daughter, somebody's son, somebody's mother or father," Patrolman Ivory said.

Both Delosreyes and a passenger, 22 year old Rosbel Guevara,both of Texas,were arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute.

Patrolman Ivory made a similar drug bust on Thanksgiving day also on I-10.

Two people were arrested after officials say five pounds of cocaine was found in their car.
