Canyon Lake Man Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison for Possession with Intent to Deliver Methamphetamine

Joshua Weaver, 45, of Canyon Lake, was sentenced to 20 years in prison last week for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, methamphetamine.

A 45-year-old Canyon Lake man who was arrested after Comal Sheriff’s Office deputies discovered methamphetamine in his backpack was sentenced to 20 years in prison Feb. 2 by Judge Dib Waldrip of the 433rd District Court in New Braunfels.

Joshua Weaver was convicted of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

The Comal County District Attorney’s Office said charges stemmed from a traffic stop in March 2018 near the intersection of FM 2673 and Overhill Street.

Comal County Sheriff’s Office deputies obtained consent to search the vehicle from the driver and a K-9 dog alerted them to Weaver’s backpack, which contained a lockbox with a scale, multiple plastic bags containing methamphetamine, empty bags, and a glass pipe with crystal residue.

“Due to the continued effort of the CCSO-Directed Deployment Unit to rid our county of narcotics, a drug dealer was taken off the streets,” the district attorney’s office said in a statement. “Thank you to all law enforcement who work tirelessly to keep Comal County safe.”

    As respects the individual who received a 20 year jail sentence— for selling Speed,, Kuddos to our Sheriffs office,,, but a F grade to our Judicial system for taking almost 4 years to deliver justice!

    Did time stop at 1986 in Hays County? Apparently so. But please: It’s way past time to end the mindless practice of saddling Texas taxpayers with the enormous cost of housing low-level drug dealers — in this case, $2 million or more if this guy serves the full 20 years. Nothing is accomplished; he will simply be replaced by another fool.
