NVID OFFICERS BUST DRUG DEALER

A 20-year-old man, who provided his customers a wide array of illegal substances, was busted late last week by Officers with the Corpus Christi Police Department’s Narcotics and Vice Investigations Division. Officers served a pre-planned search warrant on his residence in the 4300 block of Vestal street around noontime last Thursday. During the search, officers found and seized approximately one ounce of cocaine, one half-ounce of crack cocaine, five ounces of THC “wax”, six ounces of marijuana, an AK-47 type semi-auto rifle, two pistol grip shotguns, four handguns, and two bullet resistant vests; one of the vests had been reported stolen from a federal law enforcement agent during an previous auto burglary. Officers arrested Aaron Seth Bender (DOB: 6-27-1997) and charged him with manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance in penalty group 1, manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance in penalty group 2, both first degree felonies, and possession of marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor. The felonies are punishable by five to ninety-nine years in prison, while the misdemeanor charge carries a term of up to one year in jail. Detectives are continuing to investigate and additional charges are possible.

NVID Detectives, who had invested a great deal of time and effort into this case over a period of several months, were gratified by the amount of drugs recovered, as well as the number of firearms and stolen bullet proof vests that were seized during the raid.

Location: 4400 block of Kostoryz
Offense: Assault Security Officer, Assault Causes Bodily Injury
Case Number: 1711120106

At approximately 9:29 PM on Sunday, November 12, 2017, Officers were dispatched to the 4400 block of Kostoryz for an assault. Upon arrival, officers made contact with a 57-year-old male, who was working in the capacity of a security guard at the time of the assault.

The 57-year-old male advised that he was sitting on his security bicycle, completing an incident report on a handheld device, when an unknown male ran up behind him and pushed him off of his bicycle. The 57-year-old victim advised that his fall caused pain and injury.  The victim and a witness reported seeing the suspect running toward a nearby apartment complex and being picked up by a dark in color SUV.

Surveillance footage captures two males completing a purchase, exiting the store together and walking to a dark in color SUV.   The passenger soon after exits the SUV, runs up to the 57-year-old victim and knocks him to the ground for no apparent reason.  Additional footage shows the suspect running away from the scene and the SUV exiting the parking lot where the suspect is picked up outside of camera view.

The suspects are facing charges of Assault on a Security Officer (3rd degree felony) and Assault Causes Bodily Injury (Class A misdemeanor).
