On Monday, February 4, 2019 about 8 p.m., the NCSO - SWAT Team executed a high risk narcotics search warrant in the 2300 block of W 1st Avenue, Corsicana. The investigation into this suspected drug trafficking location was led by NCSO Narcotics Sergeant Rickey Ragan. Detective Ragan ultimately obtained a narcotics search warrant for the suspect location that was signed by District Judge James Lagomarsino.
Due to the extremely violent criminal history of one of the suspects at the location, the NCSO - SWAT team was utilized to execute the search warrant. A total of five adults were originally detained at the location and four small children were also found inside the residence.
Approximately 345 grams of Methamphetamine, with a street value of nearly $35,000 was seized. The primary suspect also had $2,335 that was seized subject to asset forfeiture. CPS was called to the location to evaluate the children’s welfare.
This was a significant seizure of Methamphetamine for this area. I am not only proud of all our officers that were involved in this operation, but I am also very proud of the fact that these drugs will never reach the streets.
One suspect was arrested at the scene and transported to the Navarro County Justice Center where he was charged with Man/Del CS PG1 > 200g < 400g, Abandon/Endanger Child and POM < 2 and additional arrests are expected to be forthcoming as a result of this investigation.
Again, job well done to all.
Sheriff Elmer Tanner
