DPS arrests man on drug charges after search of vehicle

MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) - DPS arrested a man on drug and money laundering charges after searching a vehicle he was in Thursday.

Sergio Huerta has been charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and money laundering over $1,500.

Police say Huerta was the passenger in a 2004 Chrysler Sebring that was stopped by a DPS trooper Thursday afternoon, near West. When the driver of the car was found to have a warrant out of Dallas County for DWI, the vehicle was searched.

Huerta was found to have a small amount of marijuana and another controlled substance, along with a "substantial" amount of cash, after police searched the vehicle.

The money is suspected to be related to a drug transaction, leading to the money laundering charges.
