NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputies arrested two men in connection to two separate ongoing drug investigations Tuesday.
As a result of the search warrants investigators served on two different locations, the NCSO has seized a large amount of methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana.
Damion Deneigh Yarbrough Sr. 32, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a first-degree felony charge of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance between 1 and 400 grams and a state-jail felony charge of possession of marijuana between 4 ounces and 5 pounds. No bail has been set at this time.
Also in the jail is Rhonald Palmer, 43, who was charged with a second-degree felony charge of possession of a controlled substance between 4 and 200 grams and a Class B misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance less than 28 grams. No bail has been set for his charges either.
According to a press release, the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant on a residence in the 3000 block of FM 2259 after NCSO investigators received a tip that large amounts of narcotics were being stored and sold from the residence. Inside the Yarbrough's bedroom, the deputies found 375 grams of cocaine, five pounds of marijuana, digital scales, plastic baggies, and three pistols.
NCSO investigators also got a warrant to search a home in the Appleby area after they received a tip that meth was present at the residence. The search led to the seizure of five grams of crystal meth and Zanax pills. Palmer was arrested at the scene and charged with the two possession charges.
