After a lengthy investigation, Angelina County sheriffs deputies executed a search warrant at a home on Lewis Lambert Road. Investigators recovered cocaine, marijuana, a large sum of money, and other items of evidence. Authorities arrested Martin Ocon Jr. and his 17-year-old sister. They say she was directly involved in Ocon's drug operation.

Bond was set at $10,000 for both. Authorities say they need help to win the war on drugs. They say this arrest is the perfect example of what it will take, folks wanting to clean-up their neighborhoods.
