SAN AUGUSTINE, TX (KTRE) - Officers with the San Augustine Police Department arrested two East Texas residents for manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance after they executed a search warrant on a house near the town's middle school and found 16.5 grams of crack cocaine.
Tressa Moody, 26, and Arthur Watts, 62, both of San Augustine, are still being held in the San Augustine County Jail. Both of them were charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance in a school zone, which is a first-degree felony. Watts' bond was set at $30,000, and Moody's PR bond was set at $75,000.
According to Chief Jesse Fountain of the San Augustine Police Department, they received a tip from one of their confidential informants about someone making drugs at a residence on Highway 96. The San Augustine Police Department obtained a search warrant and allegedly found 16.65 grams of crack cocaine.
Moody and Watts were arrested at the scene and transported to the San Augustine County Jail. Fountain said the duo's charges were upgraded to manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance in a school zone because the home was within 1,000 feet of the San Augustine Middle School.
