Sentencing delayed in drug cases

By From page A4 | December 21, 2012

VALLEJO — Sentencing was delayed Thursday for two Vacaville brothers in connection with a November 2010 Vacaville police raid that netted drugs, ammunition and cash.

Solano County Superior Court Judge Allan Carter delayed sentencing Alexander Hernandez, 23, and Jose Hernandez Jr., 33, until Jan. 10, 2013. Jose Hernandez Jr. was convicted of possessing a controlled substance for sale and possessing an assault weapon. Alexander Hernandez was convicted of possessing a controlled substance for sale.

The police raid at two Vacaville houses yielded such items as two pounds of bagged marijuana and 170 marijuana plants, an AR-15 assault rifle, a shotgun, a machine pistol, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, a quarter-ounce of a white powdery substance and more than $11,000, according to court records released in 2010.

    "a quarter-ounce of a white powdery substance". I have not been following the case, but are you telling me that the police have not identified this substance conclusively yet? I have a couple pounds of this stuff in my cabinet as I type.
