Trinity PD makes meth arrest of duo who claimed to be buying flowers

TRINITY, TX (KTRE) - Things went downhill fast for a Huntsville duo who claimed to be buying flowers for their grandmother in Trinity at a closed flower shop. 


Twenty-four-year-old Aaron Zavertnik is charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia in a drug free zone and 34-year-old Kevin Slasor is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia in a drug free zone.  

The men allegedly pulled their pickup truck on the front porch of Wildwood flower shop and got it stuck there. 


"With the weather being so bad, the rain saturated the ground, and they couldn't move,"said Steve Jones, Chief of Police in Trinity.  


According to officers, the men claimed they were riding around to look for flowers.  They went to Valero in Riverside, but their flowers were dead-looking.  Someone suggested they go to Wildwood Florist.  This flower shop, however, has been closed down for a while.

When Trinity police arrived, both men were acting strange. 


A strong marijuana odor gave officials probable cause to search the vehicle. Officer Wheeler and Officer Barak found 6 grams of meth and a meth pipe in the vehicle.
