Affidavit: Crockett man sold meth, endangered 13-year-old-son

CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) - Officers with the Crockett Police Department arrested at 47-year-old man after authorities executed a search warrant on his home on 10th Street and discovered that he was allegedly endangering his 13-year-old son by selling methamphetamine from the residence.

Adrian Harold Pounders, of Crockett, is still being held in the Houston County Jail on a third-degree felony child endangerment charge and a Class C misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia charge.

According to the affidavit, a CPD officer made a traffic stop at about 2 a.m. Sunday and learned from one of the passengers that Pounders was selling illegal drugs from his home in the 200 block of S. 10th Street.

After the officer obtained a search warrant for Pounders' home, and it was executed about four hours later, the CPD officer found numerous "meth pipes' and other drug paraphernalia including baggies containing meth residue and digital scales throughout the home.

The officer also found a Ziploc bag that contained about .7 grams of meth in it, the affidavit stated.

Because of the large amount of drug paraphernalia discovered in the home, Pounders was charged with child endangerment because his 13-year-old son also lives there.

Pounders was later arrested and taken to the Houston County Jail.
