Two men who reportedly participated in a shooting that left two people wounded outside of a bar in north Laredo are now facing charges of burglary and possession charged in connection with the robbery of a drug stash house.

Pablo Antonio Gonzalez, 21, and Eduardo Gonzalez, 22, along with two other suspects broke into a residence to steal 141.2 pounds of pot, according to the Laredo Morning-Times.

Authorities served with warrants to each of the suspects for burglary of a habitation with intent to commit other felony and felony possession of marijuana.

The four men remained in custody at the Webb County Jail, where they were held for aggravated assault with a firearm charge in connection with the bar shooting.

In November, authorities arrested and identified the two other suspects as Guadalupe Bedarte, 34, and Juan Manuel Delgado, 31.

Bedarte faces the same charges as the Gonzalez pair while Delgado was charged only with a burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony.

Police were dispatched to a burglary report of a suspected drug stash house on November 7th.

A man said that four masked males with handguns had assaulted him. The suspects then fled.

Officers said they noticed a vehicle matching the description and pulled the car over. But the occupants allegedly fled on foot. Officers then found that the vehicle was loaded with six bundles of marijuana.

Authorities busted a male who was identified as Delgado. He was allegedly caught with a .40-caliber handgun on his waist.

“Delgado was taken to the Laredo Police Department where he confessed that he had robbed marijuana from a stash house with his buddies,” officials said in a statement.

Detectives said they identified the fleeing occupants through security footage from a local convenience store. They were identified as Pablo Antonio Gonzalez, Eduardo Gonzalez, and Bedarte.
