POLICE BLOTTER: Pair with history of arrests charged with possessing controlled substances

At 1:13 a.m. Saturday a Weatherford officer reportedly made a traffic stop on a 2006 Mazda car in the 700 block of North Main Street driving without its headlights on.

The driver was identified as Jennifer Michelle Gebert, 30, of Weatherford, and a passenger in the car was identified as Richard Phillip Basaldua, 51, of Weatherford, according to a report. Basaldua was allegedly found in possession of what the officer called a “usable amount of methamphetamine in the amount of less than one (1) gram.” Gebert was allegedly found in possession of less than 28 grams of Hydrocodone.

Both were taken to Parker County Jail, where during the book-in process less than 1 gram of methamphetamine was allegedly found on Gebert.

Gebert was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possessing a prohibitive substance in a correctional facility. She remained in Parker County Jail as of  Tuesday evening under bonds totaling $13,000.

Gebert has a history of arrests and jail book-ins over the past two years, according to county records, on charges that include hindering apprehension of a known felon and other controlled substance possession charges.

Basaldua was charged with possession of a controlled substance and remained in Parker County Jail as of Tuesday evening under a $20,000 bond.

Basaldua also has a history of arrests and county jail book-ins dating back to 2001, according to county records, on charges that include aggravated assault of a public servant, terroristic threat, theft, forgery and public intoxication.
