Police arrested two Austin residents after a March 29 drug bust allegedly uncovered nearly 42 grams of methamphetamines.
Adelfa Coroado Buentello, 52, and Ramiro Buentello Jr., 57, both face a felony charge in Mower County Court for first-degree drug possession of more than 25 grams of meth.
Police raided the home at the 1600 block of Oakland Avenue East at about 7 a.m. March 29. Police breached the door when nobody answered but later spoke to Ramiro, who showed them 0.66 grams of meth folded inside of cash in a pants pocket, according to the court complaint. The complaint adds officers then found three stashes of meth totaling 41.8 grams hidden in the soil of potted plants.
Both suspects are scheduled to appear in court on April 11.
