Texas man indicted on federal drug trafficking charges

A 43-year-old Texas man arrested last month after law enforcement officials seized nearly four pounds of methamphetamine has been indicted by federal grand jurors. The Lubbock resident has been indicted for possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of meth and possession of a firearm while committing a drug trafficking crime. He's also accused of being a convicted felon in possession of a gun, according to a news report.

He has been held at the county's detention center since his arrest late last month by county investigators.

According to a news report in the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, Texas Anti-Gang Center members allege that the defendant is a gang member. He's accused of selling drugs out of his Lubbock home.

The news report states that sheriff's deputies conducted surveillance of the home and said they saw people coming and going, staying only for short periods. Officers believed the visits were for drug transactions, court records state.

After officers made traffic stops of vehicles leaving the man's home, methamphetamine and marijuana were found. One man in a stopped vehicle apparently told police that he purchased the marijuana at the suspect's home.

A search of the residence resulted in seizure of 3.66 pounds of meth, four ounces of marijuana and a handgun.

Clearly, the suspect faces the possibility of spending years in a federal prison if he's convicted on all charges. Anyone in a similar set of circumstances should speak first with a criminal defense attorney devoted to protecting freedom and rights.
