4 people arrested for meth, heroin, cocaine, marijuana in Texas

An apartment complex in Tyler was the scene of a drug raid in late August. Narcotics investigators in Henderson County had targeted the home of a 53-year-old woman. According to the Henderson County Sheriff, she had been arrested the week before in a different town and found to have one-quarter pound of methamphetamine in her possession. At her Tyler location, authorities reported seizing another half pound of methamphetamine, heroin, marijuana and a substance believed to be cocaine. The woman now faces charges of manufacturing and delivering controlled substances. The court set her bond at $50,000, and she remains jailed in the Smith County Jail.

The raid on her residence also resulted in the arrest of three other people. A 52-year-old man has been charged with similar crimes as the woman along with marijuana possession. A 34-year-old male resident of Tyler taken into custody was determined to be a felon in possession of an unlicensed firearm. The fourth person arrested, a 34-year-old woman, only received a charge for possession of a controlled substance.

The Tyler Police Department assisted the Sheriff's office with the investigation and raid. The sheriff said that the four arrests in Tyler represented only a portion of the drug arrests made in the area that month. Law enforcement activities had removed $55,000 worth of methamphetamine from the market.

A person facing a drug charge could experience long-term consequences beyond a prison sentence. Even after release, diminished employment opportunities could impact the person's whole life. The representation of an attorney might limit penalties and protect someone from a felony conviction. An attorney may be able to accomplish this by questioning the validity of evidence or negotiating a plea deal with the prosecutor.
