El Paso, TX – On Monday, June 7, 2021, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit in partnership with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service – El Paso Office conducted a narcotics investigation that led to the arrest of one individual.

Sheriff’s Office investigators were notified by U.S. Postal Inspectors of the possibility of narcotics being delivered via the postal service to a residence located on the 400 block of Huereque Dr.

Through the course of the investigation, investigators observed Manuel Montanez, age 18, accept a package from the U.S. postal inspector. Montanez proceeded to leave the residence with the package delivered moments earlier. A subsequent traffic stop resulted in the search of the vehicle, which yielded the discovery of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) vape cartridges weighing 714 grams.

Montanez was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility for Man/Del CS PG 2>=400G with a $100,000 bond.
