State Rep. Poncho Nevárez, D-Eagle Pass, has bonded out of jail after he was caught on surveillance footage in early September dropping a white envelope with cocaine inside.
The arrest warrant signed by a Travis County magistrate was issued Thursday. It states Nevárez faces a charge of Possession of Substance in Penalty Group 1, which is a third-degree felony and punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Bond amount was set at $10,000. Nevárez confirmed over text he turned himself in Thursday night in Maverick County.
According to an affidavit for a search warrant to collect Nevárezs DNA, filed in late October, an officer from the Texas Department of Public Safety was called for help by DPS Texas Highway Patrol regarding a substance that was found by a Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) employee. It states earlier on Sept. 6, four small clear plastic baggies containing a white powder-like substance were found inside a sealed envelope outside the entrance of the TxDOT Flight Services in Austin.
The envelope had a letterhead that was from the Office of the State of Texas House of Representatives Member Poncho Nevárez, the affidavit says. Surveillance footage shows Nevárez leaving TxDOT Flight Services and dropping a white paper object as he was getting into the front passenger seat of his chief of staffs black SUV.

Lefty bailed him out
Why is it again that Mexicans don’t grill?
Poncho....Cisco! Yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk!
He will do 5 years probation.
Looks like Texas media outlets spiked the story til it got out, then had to run with it.
All the Federales say they could’ve had him any day
They only let him slip away out of kindness I suppose
Let’s jail him in Cleveland.
LOCK him up. No truth, no justice. No justice, no America. Pablo, you f’n MORON.
Four bags should have been “possession with intent to distribute”.
