Three Arrested After 20lbs Meth Buy Bust

Yesterday three people were arrested after undercover officers successfully bought 20 pounds of meth.

There were two operations going on. In the first, two men were arrested, then they found more evidence that led them to arrest the third man.

Miguel Bravo-Farias and Hector Terrazas were arrested after an agent reached out to them over the phone trying to buy the illegal drugs. The suspects met the agents at a Denny's, showing him a box full of five plastic bags of meth.

Two other agents, were close by, watching a home on the 6700 block of North East 19th Avenue. That's when agents saw Rogelio Xochitl-Amparan leaving the home.
   
With help from the Amarillo Police Department, he was pulled over and arrested for a vehicle registration violation.

When agents returned and secured Terrazas' home, they found multiple containers, glasses and what they call crystal-like residue they think is meth.

During an interview with Bravo-Farias, he admitted to agents, the men used Terrazas' home as a lab for turning meth from a liquid to a crystal substance.

Bravo-Farias says they take the money they make from selling the meth to a home on Austin Street where they keep it up until they make a trip back to Mexico, where part of their business is run from.
 
Charges were filed in federal court today. They're facing charges of conspiracy to distribute and possession with the intent to distribute.
