Nine people face drugs charges after Texas drug raids
POLICE have charged nine people after marijuana, drug utensils and unsecured rifles were found in a number of homes in Texas.
Texas Police, with the assistance of officers from Stanthorpe, Warwick, and Goondiwindi Criminal Investigation Branches and Yelarbon, Inglewood, and Wallangarra stations, executed a number of search warrants last week.
The raids were conducted as part of Operation North Merlin, with nine people charged with 28 offences.
Police located a well-established hydroponic system along with 3kg of dried marijuana at one residence.
Smaller quantities of marijuana leaf along with a number of marijuana plants, drug utensils, methylamphetamine and two unsecured rifles were located and seized at the other residences.
The success of the operation is attributed to excellent information received from members of the general public.
The nine people will appear in Inglewood Magistrates Court on January 21.
