MPD arrest six people in relation to firearms and marijuana located inside a vehicle near LHS' campus

In an updated report from the City of Midland, this afternoon MPD stopped a car near campus containing individuals from the earlier firearm and drug-related incident

MIDLAND, Texas — UPDATE:  According to the arrest affidavit, officers were in the area near Legacy High School due to a call referring to gang-related issues. 

Previously gang-related issues occurred the day before these arrests on Sept. 12 when a jumping occurred near the Legacy campus. When officers saw two vehicles approach each other on Sept. 13 near Godfrey and Cimmaron, they decided to intervene with the thought that a fight could break out. 

Officers were able to make contact with one of the vehicles, a maroon Honda, which had six people in it despite only having five seats. Once the suspects left the vehicle, officers were able to locate four pistols in different spots of the Honda and 25 TCH carts that each weighed around gram. 

The four adult suspects, 17-year-old Daniel Valasquez, 18-year-old Angel Carrillo, 17-year-old Josiah Munos and 17-year-old Angel Rivera Jr. were all taken to the Midland County Detention Center and charged with Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon and Possession of a Controlled Substance. The two juveniles were taken to the Barbara Culver Detention Center.
