Many police agencies often work together to combat illegal drug use in Texas and other states around the country. Alleged drug crimes are frequently identified by police officers in efforts to keep drugs off the streets and reduce the negative impact they have on peoples’ lives. A recent incident resulted in the arrest of six people on a variety of drug charges.
The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office reported that six Richmond and Rosenberg residents between 19 and 29 years old were arrested following a search of a home. According to reports, officers had executed a search warrant for the residence. Police say they found drug paraphernalia that indicated the manufacturing, packaging and distribution of cocaine. Law enforcement officials claim they also discovered synthetic cannabinoids, Xanax and cocaine in their search.
In addition to the sheriff’s officers, the Rosenberg Police Department and the Fort Bend Regional SWAT Team joined in the search. Agents from the Fort Bend County narcotic task force were also involved. Those arrested include a 29-year-old man, a 28-year-old man, a 27-year old man and a 26-year-old man. In addition, a 20-year-old woman and a 19-year-old woman were also booked in the Fort Bend County jail.
Drug crimes in Texas can be potentially serious and, if convicted, may affect someone’s life for a very long time. It would be beneficial for a person facing charges regarding drug crimes to seek the advice of a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. A lawyer will thoroughly investigate the situation and develop the strongest defense possible for any given scenario.
