The trial for a Robstown businessman accused of selling drugs has been moved to December in order to await a potential indictment from a separate case involving the man.
The trial for 66-year-old Jose Castillo Saenz will now take place in the 347th District Court of Judge Nelva Gonzalez Ramos on Dec. 13. Saenz is facing two counts of possession of a controlled substance after police found heroin, cocaine and methadone, as well as an unlicensed handgun, during a July 19 raid on a warehouse housed on the same property as Dor-An's Home Health Care, a business that is run by members of Saenz's family.
The trial date was originally scheduled for Monday, but a decision was made to reschedule it because a separate case involving an unlawful carrying of a weapon charge from the July 19 raid has yet to go before a grand jury, court officials said.
Robstown police arrested Saenz earlier this year after an officer found heroin and an unlicensed handgun in Saenz's car during a traffic stop.
