Texas deputies arrested two people, including an active gang member, during a drug bust last month, authorities said Wednesday.

The drug bust happened on Aug. 19 in San Antonio after an organized crime task force executed a search warrant in the 5000 block of Beryl Cove, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said.

During the raid, the sheriff’s office said that deputies spotted a woman, later identified as 28-year-old Sahara Martin, fleeing from the back of the residence and throwing two large bags over the fence.

Inside the residence, authorities said they located 45-year-old Jody Martinez, whom they described as an active gang member, along with large quantities of drugs, two handguns and a stolen motorcycle.

Investigators said the estimated value of the seized drugs was over $43,000.

Both Martin and Martinez were charged with multiple drug-related felony offenses. Martin was additionally charged with unlawful possession of metal or body armor, felon in possession of a firearm- and attempt to tamper with evidence with intent to kill.
