Two Texas residents were taken into custody after police executed a search warrant at the couple’s home on Aug. 7. Authorities said that multiple drugs were taken from the Conroe residence.
Investigators received a tip into the drugs and served the search warrant at about 1:40 p.m. During the search, the investigators seized significant quantities of marijuana, THC oil and THC wax Two LSD stamps and a variety of drug paraphernalia were also seized. The report said that the THC oil, an active crystalline compound that is extracted from marijuana plants, was packaged so that it could be used in vapor cigarettes.
The two accused individuals were identified as a 20-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman. Both individuals were charged with possession of marijuana and manufacturing and delivering narcotics.
The state of Texas prosecutes drug cases aggressively. This means that the consequences for even a minor drug charge can be serious and can have a major impact on the person’s future. For example, those facing a drug charge could be sentenced to jail, probation or be fined if they are convicted. The conviction could go on their criminal record, potentially preventing these individuals for obtaining employment, loans or seeking additional schooling. A criminal defense attorney may defend an accused person against the charges. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the case and the evidence against the accused person, the attorney could utilize different defense strategies. If other individuals were involved in the case, for example, the attorney may argue that the drugs did not belong to the accused person.
