Three individuals were taken into custody by Texas law enforcement after officials say they discovered an operation to distribute drugs. After receiving a tip from a confidential informant, both the U.S. Postal Inspector’s Office and the Wichita County District Attorney’s Office Drug Enforcement Division launched a joint investigation. This resulted in the arrest of three individuals, and they are all facing charges for using the postal system to distribute methamphetamine.
Details of the investigation
Law enforcement intercepted a package mailed from another state that was delivered to a personal residence. The package allegedly contained a small amount of methamphetamine, and this led to the issuance of a search warrant. Law enforcement searched the home, and additional small packages of meth were found in the home. The primary resident of the home, as well as two others, were arrested for distributing and receiving illegal substances through the mail.
Two of the individuals taken into custody apparently admitted to possession of the meth and supplying it to others. Reportedly, the primary resident of the home has dozens of arrests on his criminal record, as well as multiple parole violations. He is now charged with the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.
What happens now?
When facing any type of drug-related charges, it will be in the interests of a Texas defendant to secure counsel and guidance of an experienced defense attorney. Regardless of the nature of the specific charges or one’s criminal record, everyone charged with a crime has the right to a defense. These individuals charged with the distribution of methamphetamine will benefit from securing the appropriate help necessary to build a strong defense.
