A federal grand jury Wednesday indicted Anthony Rincon Gonzalez, 35, for possession with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of methamphetamine.  

The indictment also accused Gonzalez of possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug crime and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. 

On July 18, Gonzalez was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, abandonment of a child, tampering with evidence, evading law enforcement in a vehicle, money laundering, and failure to leave information (after striking someone’s property while driving).  

An incident report from the Lubbock County Detention Center said on the afternoon of July 18, a DPS officer noticed a suspicious vehicle in the 5000 block of Avenue Q.

“The vehicle fled and wrecked into a fence at the 2400 block of 47th Street,” the report said. 

DPS made a statement at the time saying officers saw a “possible drug transaction.” DPS said narcotics and a weapon were found in the car.  

The incident report said Gonzalez and two juveniles were arrested.  

Gonzalez’ previous arrests included burglary and animal cruelty.  He was held Wednesday in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a combination of federal and state charges.  

On the state charges alone, Gonzalez would have to post bond of more than $288,000 to get released until his trial date.
