Waynesboro man arrested on meth charges

Estrada-Almanza, JoseAnother day, another arrest in Waynesboro on meth charges. The Waynesboro Police Department arrested a city man on Friday on a single count of drug distribution after officers caught him with an ounce of methamphetamine.

Officers charged Jose Estrada-Almanza, 23 years old, who was the target of an ongoing drug investigation, with one count of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.  Just after midnight on Aug. 1, officers observed Estrada-Almanza walking in the 800 block of King Avenue.  In his possession, he had an individual serving size box of Frosted Flakes from which he was eating.  When the officers approached Estrada-Almanza, he tried to toss the cereal box in the air discreetly.

The officers recovered it and found the methamphetamine wrapped in plastic in the bottom of the box.  Estrada-Almanza claimed it wasn’t his.

Estrada-Almanza is being held at Middle River Regional Jail without bond.
