CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) - A 47-year-old Crockett man accepted a plea bargain deal of 14 months in a state jail for endangering his 13-year-old son by selling methamphetamine from his home.
Adrian Harold Pounders appeared in a Houston County courtroom, and as part of the deal, he pleaded guilty to a third-degree felony child endangerment charge.
According to the affidavit, a Crockett Police Department officer made a traffic stop on Pounders back in January 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.
