Juan-Manuel-MunozPolice arrested two men after finding about 4.6 pounds of methamphetamine in their car outside a Round Rock restaurant, according to an arrest affidavit.

Juan Manuel Munoz, 26, of Austin, and Servando Nieto-Rodriguez, 29, of Manor, were both charged with possession of a controlled substance.

A police officer had been observing Munoz for two months in connection with narcotic activity, the affidavit said. The officer had Munoz under surveillance on Tuesday when Munoz left his house in Spicewood and drove to Austin, the affidavit said.

Munoz drove to a location known as a “gameroom” business near North Lamar Boulevard and Braker Lane, it said. He parked next to a black Lexus that a “reliable source” had observed in the same parking lot within the past two weeks with several pounds of methamphetamine inside of it, according to the document.

The officer saw Munoz walking from the gameroom to the Lexus with Nieto-Rodriguez both carrying a “grocery-type” plastic bag that a confidential informant had said they used to transport narcotics, it said.Servando-Nieto-Rodriguez

Munoz and Nieto-Rodriguez both got into the Lexus and Munoz drove it to the Twin Peaks Bar and Grill in Round Rock, the affidavit said. Police stopped Munoz and Nieto-Rodriguez after they left the restaurant and before they tried to get back into the vehicle, the document said.

Officers searched the vehicle and found three plastic bags containing a total of 2,104 grams of methamphetamine, it said.

Munoz and Nieto-Rodriguez were being held Wednesday at the Williamson County Jail with bail set at $100,000 for each.

Possession of 200 grams or more of methamphetamine is a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison.
