Three arrested for meth dealing at local apartments

Three people accused of dealing methamphetamine in Fredericksburg were arrested this week by officers working together from the Fredericksburg Police Department and the Gillespie County Sheriff’s Office.

Just under 10 grams of meth packaged for delivery were discovered during the execution of a search warrant by officers around midnight on Saturday, Feb. 1, at 21 Linda Drive, Apartment 4, off U.S. Highway 87, north of Fredericksburg, according Detective Terry Weed of the Fredericksburg Police Department (FPD.)

Oscar Ramirez, 26, who reportedly lives at that single-bedroom apartment, was arrested earlier in the day on a traffic violation for driving with no license, Weed said.

Investigation surrounding that incident led to the joint-force execution of a search warrant for narcotics at the apartment later that night, where additional occupants Holly Ewan, 25, and Stephen Benitez, 25, were arrested for “manufacturing/delivery of a controlled substance,” Weed said.
