Port Lavaca man arrested, accused of selling synthetic marijuana

A Port Lavaca man who was arrested on felony drug charges was in jail Tuesday, according to court records.

Nicolas Esparza, 26, was arrested by Victoria County Sheriff’s Office deputies at about 7:52 p.m. Monday on a warrant charging him with engaging in organized criminal activity and manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance between 4 — 400 grams, according to jail records.

Esparza is accused of producing “synthetic marijuana compounds” with intent to deliver, according to court records. He was indicted of the charges by a Victoria County grand jury in July.

The charges are first-degree felonies that, if convicted, may be punishable by 5-99 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000 may be assessed, according to the Texas Penal Code.

Esparza was held in jail Tuesday on a $50,000 bond, according to jail officials.
