They were each charged with five felonies - manufacture or delivery of controlled substance, three counts of abandoning or endangering a child, and engaging in organized criminal activity.
According to a post on the Sabine County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, SCSO deputies went to a home in the Toledo Beach Subdivision to do a routine check after they received a tip of possible drug activity at the location on Oct. 7.
When they made contact with the people in the home, they found that one of them had an outstanding arrest warrant. While they were making the arrest, the SCCO deputies noticed methamphetamine on a table and conducted a more thorough search of the home, the Facebook post stated.
The deputies located 6.03 grams of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and $473 in cash, the Facebook post stated.
Chief Deputy George Griffith with the Sabine County Sheriff's Office said they charged the three suspects with child endangerment because there were children in the home where the meth was found.
