Three Port Lavaca men were arrested on drug charges Tuesday after deputies found 358 grams of marijuana during a traffic stop.
Jestin Ramirez, 26; Chris Rodriguez, 25; and Markie Morales, 34, were charged with manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance between 4 grams and 400 grams, a first degree felony, according to the arrest report.
A Victoria County Sheriff's Office deputy pulled over the vehicle at 1:22 a.m. in the 900 block of Ben Jordan Street on suspicion of a defective tail lamp. The deputy said the marijuana, held in 31 separate bags, was in plain sight, according to the arrest report.
All three men remained in the Victoria County Jail.
