A Howard County grand jury handed down more than two dozen indictments last week, including numerous true-bills for possession of a controlled substance.
The grand jury met Thursday but because of the Easter holidays, results were not released until Monday afternoon.
Among those indicted were:
â€¢ Jesus Castaneda Bustamante, 69, of 605 S. Nolan, possession of a controlled substance (state jail felony).
â€¢ Jimmy Escovedo Rodriquez, 53, currently being held at the county jail, possession of a controlled substance (third-degree felony, enhanced).
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Monday and 7 a.m. today:
â€¢ ARMANDO JOSE CERVANTES, 18, of 1304 Madison, was arrested Monday on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily harm to a family member, consumption of alcohol by a minor and failure to appear.
â€¢ MARTIN ANTHONY RAMIREZ, 20, of 2008 Nolan, was arrested Monday on warrants for assault â€“ family violence and failure to appear.
Area residents of Big Spring's District 2 will get the chance to get rid of some of their oversized garbage Friday, as the city continues its annual large item pickup service.
