On Monday, July 6th at approximately 3:30 p.m., NCSO Detectives went to a residence in the 500 block of South 19th in Corsicana on a credit card abuse investigation.

Detectives made contact at the residence and identified five subjects at the location, confirming one of the suspects was the suspect involved with the credit card abuse investigation.

They were ultimately able to not only recover the stolen credit card but several items that had been purchased with the cr...edit card.

Detectives also observed inside the residence narcotic paraphernalia in plain view which led to obtaining a narcotic search warrant for the location.

The officers executed the search warrant and located evidence of narcotic distribution taking place at the residence. Officers seized digital scales and approximately 8.5 grams of methamphetamine packaged individually and ready for street level distribution.

As a result of the investigation, one suspect was arrested for Credit Card Abuse and one suspect was arrested for Manufacture/Delivery Controlled Substance PG 1 > 4g < 200g.

I am proud of our Detectives who not only solved this financial crime but also stopped these illegal drugs from hitting the streets of our community.

Well done officers.

Sheriff Elmer Tanner
