The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office reports that two people were arrested following a drug bust. The pair were taken into custody on August 24 after a search warrant was executed on a home located in the Missouri City area of Texas.

Authorities report that the Fort Bend County Narcotics Task Force conducted an investigation into narcotics sales in the county, which led to the issuance of a search warrant for the home. Upon executing the search warrant, officers reportedly found $3,100 in cash, 264 grams of ecstasy, 4.3 pounds of marijuana, 3 pounds of synthetic cannabinoids, 50 grams of cocaine and a variety of prescription drugs.

Two people were taken into custody by law enforcement officers, including a 40-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman. They each have been charged with six felony counts of delivery of a controlled substance. Five of the charges are first-degree felonies, and the remaining count is a third-degree felony. All of the alleged offenses happened in a drug-free zone.

Drug charges can be very serious. If people are accused of selling large quantities of drugs, and if their alleged offenses took place in drug-free zones, they may face aggravated sentences. Individuals who are charged with major drug crimes might want to get help from experienced drug defense lawyers as soon as possible. Attorneys may review the evidence against their clients as well as the affidavits the officers used to obtain the search warrants. They may also check the warrants to determine if the searches complied with what was authorized. If there are any problems, lawyers may file a motion to seek the suppression of evidence. They may work to secure the most favorable outcomes possible for their clients.
