Narcotics complaint yields arrest


On Wednesday, August 12 at approximately 9:30 a.m., the
NCSO Narcotics Unit went to a residence in the 100 block of Ivy Street in the Goodlow community on a narcotics complaint.

Officers made contact with a resident at the location and during the initial contact they observed narcotics in plain view. Officers secured the residence pursuant to a search warrant and located a second occupant in a bedroom attempting to destroy narcotic evidence. It was later found to be a quantity of cocaine and methamphetamine.

Officers prevented any further destruction of evidence, obtained a narcotics search warrant and executed said warrant at the location.

Officers seized a quantity of marijuana, methamphetamine, approximately 12.1 grams of cocaine in both powder form and crack form and evidence of narcotic distribution was found as well.

A handgun, which was found to be reported stolen to the Dallas Police Department, was also located in the proximity of the narcotics.

One male subject was arrested and charged with Manufacture/Deliver CS PG 1 > 4g < 200g, POCS PG 1 >1g<4g, POM < 2 oz, and Tamper with Physical Evidence.

Another good job today by our Officers of keeping these illicit drugs off our streets and out of our community.
