FREDERICKSBURG – Three individuals were arrested by the Fredericksburg Police Department while assisting the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office on a warrant and narcotics investigation.

The arrests happened during a traffic stop on Sunday, March 17 in the 300 block of Morning Glory Drive at approximately 5:00 p.m. after an investigation by KCSO into Justin Kraus, 27.

The warrant was the result of an investigation into Kraus. He was said to have an active arrest warrant and absconded probation in Kerrville. His last known whereabouts were believed to be in the Fredericksburg area.

FPD gained additional information about Kraus from the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office stating that Daniel Thomas, 27, and Zoe Wood, 25, have been known to sell methamphetamine together and associate with Kraus.

After locating Kraus, Thomas, and Wood, officers conducted a traffic stop of a 2008 Honda CRV.

Fredericksburg authorities said that as the search continued, they discovered approximately 1/2 ounce of methamphetamine, numerous pills identified as Xanax, and $722.

“The narcotic investigation determined that Mr. Kraus, along with Mr. Thomas, and Ms. Wood, were actively selling methamphetamine to individuals within the City of Fredericksburg. The $722.00, as well as the 2008 Honda CRV was subsequently seized per asset forfeiture which is pending at this time,” stated Fredericksburg police.

FPD reported that Thomas and Wood were arrested and charged with manufacture and/or delivery of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1 (4-400 grams, a first-degree felony). Kraus was charged with possession of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1 (less than 1 gram, a state jail felony).
