After receiving a tip that an Alice man was in possession of methamphetamine, Alice police were able to locate him and arrested him Thursday on Olmito Street in Alice.

Police spotted Javier Garza walking in an open field Thursday. When they approached him, officers say Garza took something out of his pocket and threw it on the ground. That "something" turned out to be a baggie filled with crystal meth.

Garza was arrested and taken to the Jim Wells County Jail.
