By Brian Hews and Brian Hews

Ruben Guerrero, the husband of Montebello Mayor Christina Cortez,  who was arrested on Thursday morning on alleged felony related drug charges, has been released from custody after posting a $60,000 bail.  Sources tell Hews Media Group-Community Newspaper that Guerrero was released at around 7 p.m..

Guerrero will be appearing in a Los Angeles Superior Court in mid-November.

Sources close to the investigation, who did not want to be named publicly, tell HMG-CN that authorities found a  “heavy safe” inside a bedroom closet, opened it, but nothing was inside.

In the meantime, Cortez issued a statement late Thursday that acknowledged here “appreciation” and the “outpouring” of support given to her and her family.

“As a mother, as a daughter, and as an elected official, I have supported the education of understanding the dangers of drugs. [Thursday’s] events will not change that,” the Mayor added.

Cortez urged “everyone and the public to let this investigation take its course.”
