Three Arrests Made During Sting Investigation In Escondido

Posted: Updated:

Three people were arrested, after detectives witnessed an alleged marijuana sale, during a sting operation by Escondido police trying to catch adults buying alcohol for minors.

Escondido Police Department Special Investigations Unit detectives were working an undercover "shoulder tap" operation on Thursday that involved underage decoys asking adults to buy them alcohol at Food Value Market on East El Norte Parkway when they saw what appeared to be a drug transaction, said police Lt. Craig Carter.

Escondido residents Andy Chairez, 26, and Shannon Chairez, whose age was not available, were arrested on suspicion of possessing and selling marijuana and booked into the Vista Detention Facility, Carter said.

Julio Guerreo, 21, was arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana in a vehicle. He was issued a citation and released.

A search warrant was issued for a home in the 1300 block of Greenway Rise in Escondido and detectives recovered a pound of alleged pot, a firearm, drug paraphernalia and $1,718 in cash.
