Officers received information that Cervantes was selling marijuana from church parking lots in Hoxie. A check of Cervantes showed that he was on parole and had a drug history. The officers conducted three undercover buys from Cervantes. The information was presented to a judge and a warrant was issued for Cervantes.

At the jail Cervantes’ parole officer was contacted about the arrest and a parole hold was placed on Cervantes as well.
