PECOS - New developments out of the Pecos drug raids from earlier this week. The Pecos police chief confirmed today that the police investigator who resigned following the busts Monday is now behind bars.

Helen Vernon was picked up late Tuesday night on a warrant for misuse of information.

You'll remember officials identified Jose Corrales and his daughter, Angelica Corrales as the two suspects they arrested Monday.

Jose Corrales is the live in boyfriend of Vernon. The father and daughter duo are both in federal custody charged with distribution of a controlled substance.

Officials say they were dealing crystal meth around town.
