According to court records, two counts of possession of a controlled substance were filed against Romero in November 2021.

As of the time of publishing, a federal complaint or indictment is not yet accessible through the US District Court of the Northern District of Texas Amarillo. An update will be made once these documents are made available.

The operation is one of many efforts by law enforcement to stymie the insidious epidemics of fentanyl and methamphetamine that have taken root in small towns throughout the Texas Panhandle.

The Borger Police Department also extended thanks to the Hutchinson County Sheriff's Office for their assistance in the execution of the arrest warrants.
