JASPER, TX (KTRE) -

An ongoing investigation by the Jasper Police Department’s Narcotics Division resulted in a felony drug arrest and the seizure of “a large amount” of cash and marijuana early Friday morning.

Jimmy McBride, 35, of Jasper, was arrested and charged with third-degree delivery of marijuana between 4 ounces and 5 pounds in a drug-free zone.

According to a press release, the Jasper PD Narcotics Division and the department’s SWAT team executed a narcotics search warrant on a home in the 900 block of College Street. They found McBride inside the residence.

A search of the home turned up a large amount of cash, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia, the press release stated.

“This location is only steps away from the Jasper Middle School property,” the press release stated.
