On Monday, January 13th about 2:30 p.m. , the NCSO Narcotics Unit observed a wanted subject with an active parole violation warrant at a residence in the 1000 block of W. 5th Ave. near the Corsicana ISD Drane Learning Center campus.
As deputies attempted to approach the subject, he fled from Deputies outside the residence. The Deputies pursued the fugitive and caught him after he entered the residence and was attempting to discard narcotic evidence. The subject was taken in...to custody.
Officers secured the location pursuant to obtaining a search warrant for the residence. During the execution of the search warrant, Deputies located assorted drug paraphernalia, empty baggies for distribution, digital scales, and multiple baggies containing methamphetamine.
The subject was transported to the NCSO Justice Center where he was charged with Man/Del CS PG 1 > 1g < 4g Drug Free Zone, Evading Arrest Detention and the Parole Violation warrant.
The residence was within 1000 feet from Corsicana ISD Drane Learning Center campus which is a Drug Free Zone.
I am very proud of our officers and the job they do in continually working to take these drugs off the streets and keep them out of Navarro County.
Sheriff Elmer Tanner
