DOUGLASS, TX (KTRE) -

Nacogdoches County Sheriff's investigators arrested three Dallas men Friday evening and charged them with felony possession of marijuana after the three men entered the Douglass Café parking lot in two separate vehicles.

The NCSO investigators also seized 53 pounds of marijuana, which has an estimated street value of more than $42,000.

Rodolfo Aldaran, 27, Humberto Lopez-Guzman, 27, and Armando Torres, 21, are still being held at the Nacogdoches County Jail. All three men were charged with possession of marijuana between 50 and 2,000 pounds, which is a second-degree felony. No bail has been set at this time.

According to a press release, NCSO investigators who were in the Douglass area following up on an investigation allegedly saw the three men pull into the Douglass Café in two separate vehicles. The vehicles appeared to be traveling together, and the three suspects allegedly started acting nervous when the investigators walked into the business.

When the investigators spoke to the three men, they noticed that the three men were acting "very nervous," the press release stated. Acting on a hunch that the three men were involved in some kind of criminal activity, the NCSO investigators got permission to search the two pickup trucks.

The NCSO investigators allegedly found five large bundles of marijuana in the back seat of the first pickup. They also found a false compartment in the tool box of the second vehicle that had a motorized switch that would open it. Even though the compartment was empty, the investigators found evidence of where the compartment had been used in the past to smuggle narcotics.

Bridges said that he believed that the marijuana was headed for Nacogdoches and added that his investigators are trying to track down the exact destination for the weed.

"It is apparent that we have identified and arrested a large distributor of narcotics that has been supplying this area," Bridges said.
