CCPD Sends in S.W.A.T. to Arrest Suspected Drug Dealer

CORPUS CHRISTI - Police arrested a suspected drug dealer this morning at an apartment complex off Cedar Pass.

28-year-old Jonathan Castaneda was arrested for possession of marijuana. Police say he'll likely also be charged with manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance.

Police say Castaneda is suspected of dealing large amounts of cocaine.

The arrest was the result of on-going undercover operation by C.C.P.D.

Police waited for Castaneda to leave with his children this morning, then a traffic unit stopped him and assisted in the arrest.

Before entering the apartment, a S.W.A.T team used a flash bang grenade to neutralize large pitbulls that they suspected were inside.

No word on what drugs or how much of those drugs were found at this time.

According to online Nueces County court records, Castaneda has a lengthy record of drug-related arrests.
