The Paris Police Department had a busy weekend, responding to 265 ‘calls for service’ and making 23 arrests, according to the department’s public information officer, Curtis Garrett.
One of the arrests was 39-year George Alexander Wells, who was taken into custody on a theft charge when he was observed trying to sell merchandise that he had not paid for, which he’d removed from shelves in a store.
When the police discovered that Wells had at least two prior convictions for theft, the would-be misdemeanor charge (theft of property <$1500) was enhanced to a felony.
He was later transferred to the Lamar County Jail.
Two were arrested and charged with almost twenty counts of manufacturing/delivery of a controlled substance last week, after a long investigation involving multiple agencies led to the seizure of sixteen ‘meth labs’ in Paris, Lamar County Sheriff Scott Cass said in a press release last week.
The Lamar County Sheriff’s Dept. Criminal Investigation Division, Sheriff’s Dept. Narcotics Unit, and the Paris Police Narcotics Unit, along with Northeast Texas Auto Theft Detectives, served the arrest warrants on the two individuals in connection with the ongoing two-month investigation into the narcotics case.
“From this investigation narcotic information, along with stolen property information, had developed that led detectives to gain felony arrest warrants,” Sheriff Cass said.
The two arrested individuals: Terry Glasgow, 32, and a Lea Dodd, 26, were apprehended at their residence in the 100 block of Neagle Street for outstanding warrants of felony theft (greater than $1,500 but less than $20K), and Glasgow also had an outstanding misdemeanor theft warrant stemming from cases being investigated by the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office, the sheriff said.
“Subsequently, sheriff detectives gained and served a search warrant on the residence where Glascow and Dodd were arrested,” Cass continued. “During the search of the property, detectives located numerous items used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.”
According to authorities, a trash pile in the back of the residence revealed the waste from numerous ingredients and components used in the cooking of methamphetamine.
These items are considered by detectives to be components of a newer method of manufacturing methamphetamine, referred to as the “shake-and-bake” or “one pot” method.
A total of sixteen separate methamphetamine labs were seized during the search warrant. Glasgow and Dodd were charged with sixteen additional charges for manufacturing/delivery of controlled substance (penalty group 1, greater than 1Gram but less than 4 Grams).
“This collaboration of investigation is good police work,” the sheriff said. “The arrest of these two individuals stopped further methamphetamine production and distribution in our communities.”
Further investigation to continue.
The bonds for Glasgow totalled $141,000.00 and Dodd’s totalled $140,000.00.
