2 people face felony drug charges following search

News sources in Texas report that two people were taken into custody on numerous drug charges after police executed a search warrant on a home in Nacogdoches. When local law enforcement officials entered the residence on East Main Street on the evening of May 17, they discovered a 21-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man in possession of a variety of drugs, including methamphetamine and marijuana. Both individuals were subsequently taken to the county jail.

According to the jail docket, the man resides in the home. He is being held on a charge of third-degree felony possession of marijuana between 5 and 50 pounds. Bail in the case has been set at $12,000.

The woman also remains in jail, and her bail has been set at $23,500. According to authorities, she was found in possession of meth, cocaine, Hydrocodone, Tramadol and Dextroamphetamine at the time that the search warrant was executed. Charges include Class B possession of a controlled substance, Class A misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance less than 28 grams, Class A misdemeanor possession of a dangerous drug, a state-jail felony possession of a controlled substance less than 1 gram, and third-degree possession of a controlled substance between 1 and 4 grams.

Although few additional details are available in connection with this particular case, Texas residents may want to be aware that a drug charge in this state is a serious matter. An individual who is facing charges may find it beneficial to discuss the case with a criminal defense attorney. In some situations, the attorney may be able to successfully challenge the prosecution's case or negotiate to have the client's charges reduced.
