Hinojosa was arrested for manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and the larceny warrant. A female in the room at the time of the warrant service 21-year old Gudino, Richelle was arrested for manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
