By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A South Lubbock drug raid back in November results in a federal indictment last week.  The indictment says Gerson Vasquez, 35, is an illegal alien who illegally possessed a 20 gauge shotgun and a 40 caliber pistol.  Vasquez was indicted on three charges including Felon In Possession of a Firearm. 

Vasquez was arrested as part of a drug raid in the 11-hundred block of 132nd Street after an investigation by the Lubbock Police Narcotics Division. 

If convicted, any one of the federal charges against Vasquez could mean up to 10 years in prison. In addition, Vasquez is accused of a state drug charge, namely possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, for which the penalty could be 2 to 20 years in prison, if convicted.
