By ROBERT STEWART Staff Writer
Two New Braunfels men remain in the Wackenhut federal correctional facility in San Antonio after being arrested Thurglay afternoon on federal warrants by agents of the Internal Revenue Service criminal investigation division, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the New Braunfels Police Department on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to launder unlawful money, said New Braunfels Police Chief CR. “Dick” Headcn.
Alan Kanz, 44, of the 600 block of Loop 337 and Joseph San to re, 60, of Route 6 were charged with four counts each of money laundering and one count each of conspiracy to launder unlawful money, Headen said.
“This was the result of a lengthy investigation,” Headen said.
Both suspects were arrested on federal warrants issued by a federal judge out of San Antonio and will be arraigned before a federal magistrate in San Antonio Friday.
“It was a money laundering scheme,” Headcn said. “There were IRS criminal agents involved that were concerned with a subterfuge to keep the IRS from finding out for tax reasons.”

A New Braunfels woman was convicted of felony possession of a controlled substance, cocaine, under 28 grams in the courtroom of U.S. District Court Judge Fred A. Moore, said Bill M. Reinter, Comal County District Attorney.
Anita R. Ybarra, 39, of the 200 block of McGaugh Ave. was referred for further investigation by probation authorities after the conviction to determine an appropriate sentence.
Sentencing is scheduled in three weeks, Reinter said.
Officers of the New Braunfels Police Department executed a search warrant March 2, 1991 on the McGaugh Ave. house. A officers entered, Ybarra ran down the hallway and Officer Mike Rust of the New Braunfels Police Department saw her throw down a cigarette pack. In the pack, police discovered four sealed, triangular “comer-baggies” which field-tested positive for cocaine, Reinter said.
Tests at the Bexar County lab confirmed that the substance was cocaine.
Testimony at the trial indicated that the triangular baggies with small quantities of drugs are a usual way that street dealers normally drugs for sale, Reinter said.
A supply of baggies was found in the bedroom and a scale, a mirror with traces of cocaine, razor blades, forceps and other drug paraphernalia were found by police in an adjacent bathroom. Reinter said.

nightmare for people trying to figure out where to vote.” Casteel said.
“This isn’t forcing anybody to do anything, but it’s an idea to work in the spirit of cooperation to assist the voters by having a single spot where they can vote rather than having to take a sack lunch and spend all day going from polling place to polling place,” she said.
Voting consolidation is a long-term goal that will require communications with the U.S. Justice Department, she said.
Elected officials received many complaints from voters who sometimes had to stop at three different polling places in the Aug. IO city, school board and state constitutional amendment elections.
