LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A federal grand jury has indicted two Lufkin residents following a Lufkin Police arrest in May after officers reported finding two pounds of marijuana and two handguns in the home.

The grand jury charges Marcel Cornelius Montgomery, 35, and Porsche Denise Davis, 25, with possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking offense and felon in possession of a firearm.

Officers responded to the 1800 block of Wood Avenue on May 20, in reference to a disturbance.

Officers said they discovered approximately two pounds of marijuana and two handguns inside the home.

The marijuana, a .25 caliber handgun, and a box of .380 caliber ammunition were found inside a gym bag, according to police.

A further search led police to a dirty clothes basket where they located a .380 caliber handgun.

Both Davis and Montgomery have prior felony convictions, making them ineligible to possess a firearm.

They bonded out of jail on May 21, but were re-arrested on Friday on the federal charges.

They are scheduled for initial appearances on Monday.
