The Sheriff’s Office for Bexar County, Texas reported that their deputies discovered over 300 grams of cocaine and $30,000 cash early Tuesday while investigating an assault on the South Side.

A spokesman for the Sherriff’s office, James Keith, said that agents were sent to Champion Homes at Marshall Meadows, which is an apartment complex just south of Loop 410, after receiving calls that two men were fighting around 1:18 a.m.

Keith also noted that one man was beating another with a bat, however when officers arrived they did not find any evidence indicating that an assault had taken place.

According to MySA.com, officers knocked on the front door of one of the apartments and were let inside by 23-year-old Alajuawan Duhart, who immediately laid on the floor and said that he surrendered. Keith announced that deputies observed a significant amount of crack cocaine and other powder, along with a 9 mm handgun and a loaded AK-47.

Investigators obtained a warrant for the apartment and found approximately $31,300 cash and seized 321 grams of cocaine.

Keith said, “It does not appear that an assault took place here, so he may have been set up.”

Officials have alleged that the residence may be utilized as a stash house.

Duhart was ultimately charged with felony drug possession and may face more charges as the investigation continues. He was reportedly arrested back in January on an unrelated drug charge.
