Irving police made two unrelated arrests this week on various criminal charges.
In the early morning hours of October 24, officers booked Nelson Antonio Funes Martinez into the Irving Jail. He was charged with possession of less than 1 gram of a penalty group 2 controlled substance in a drug free zone, as well as possession of less than 1 gram of a penalty group 1 controlled substance. Bond was set at $2,000. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has also requested an immigration hold on Funes Martinez.
Two days later on October 26, Irving police arrested 37-year-old Carlos Alfredo Martinez-Gomez and charged him with burglary of a habitation, a felony offense. Bond was issued at $5,000 in this case.
Details have not been released on the circumstances surrounding the alleged crimes. Possession charges for controlled substances indicate drugs like cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine or prescription medications without a valid prescription. Burglary of a habitation means illegally entering someone's home to commit a crime like theft.
Both suspects remain in custody pending further legal proceedings. Funes Martinez also potentially faces immigration consequences once the criminal charges are resolved.
