Drug Bust Nets Three Arrests In Goodwell
12/14/2009

Three people were arrested early last week in connection with a drug bust in Goodwell, Okla. Upon arrest, one of the passengers, also a felon was found to be carrying a firearm, a clear violation of the law. Once booked, another passenger brought more drugs into the detention facility.

According to documents obtained from the Texas County Courthouse in a story from the Guymon Daily Herald, on December 6, a 2009 Hyundai Sonata with New Mexico license plates was stopped by an agent from the District One Narcotics Task force for following too closely. The vehicle, loaded with three passengers was pulled over on Hwy. 54 in Goodwell. After the traffic stop was complete, the agent asked permission to search the vehicle, granted by the driver, Angela A. Bustamante, 31. Jessica L. Gonzales, 19, and Issac A. Martinez, 26, were passengers in the vehicle.

Prior to the search, Martinez was asked by the agent if he possessed any weapons on his person, which he admitted to. Martinez was then patted down and a loaded 38- semi automatic pistol was discovered in his waistline. It was later discovered that Martinez is a convicted felon, so by him possessing a firearm, it is another felony.

A large glass container found in the console was found with marijuana during the search. Two plastic baggies containing a green leafy substance and some digital scales in a blue bag were also discovered upon further search of the vehicle.

None of the three occupants of the vehicle claimed ownership of the drugs or paraphernalia found, so all three were taken into custody. They were then transported to the Texas County Detention Center, where during the booking process, a small compressed chunk of green leafy substance and a roach (a small unused portion of a marijuana joint) were found in the purse of Bustamante.

Bustamante, Gonzales and Martinez are all being charged with possession of a controlled substance (marijuana), within 1000 feet of a school or park, a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than two years and a fine of up to $5000. They are all also being charged with unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for up to one year, or a fine of up to $1000 or both. Because Martinez was already a convicted felon and he was found carrying a firearm, he is also being charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, a felony punishable by imprisonment for not less than two years to not more than ten years and a fine of up to $10,000.
