Texas judge denies bonds for 2 men arrested in drug raid

An investigation of drug activity in a Marlin neighborhood resulted in the issuance of a search warrant for a residence at 300 Durr St. According to reports, sheriff's deputies in Falls County raided the property and arrested two 40-year-old men and one 17-year-old minor. Within the property, law enforcement officers reported finding over $1,000 in cash, 9 grams of methamphetamine, small bags of marijuana, digital scales, a surveillance system, a .45 caliber handgun and a modified .22 rifle.

The minor obtained release on a $2,500 surety bond, but the adult men remain in jail because a judge denied them an opportunity to post bond. A news release from the sheriff detailed the charges against the adult men, which included possession of drug paraphernalia, misdemeanor marijuana possession, manufacturing of a controlled substance and resisting arrest. One of the men reportedly received treatment at a local emergency room after suffering minor injuries in an altercation with a deputy during his arrest.

Authorities applied additional charges to one of the men for possessing a firearm as a felon. He was also found to be in violation of probation and behind on child support payments.

A person with a prior criminal history might benefit from the representation of an attorney after an arrest for drug crimes. An attorney may be able to develop a defense strategy after reviewing the circumstances behind a search warrant. Any signs that law enforcement violated a person's rights might empower an attorney to challenge the validity of evidence. This tactic may undermine a case altogether or allow an attorney to negotiate a plea deal for reduced charges.
