According the Cameron County Constable’s Pct. 1 office, deputy constables arrived at the 800 block of Michigan Street in Laguna Heights at approximately 11 a.m. to serve a warrant on 27-year-old Melissa Jo Nuñez.
While deputy constables were awaiting assistance from the Cameron County Sheriff’s Office, Nuñez partially removed the handcuffs which had been securing her and opened the door of the unmarked vehicle where she was being detained.
