Graham Police Department makes three drug busts within four days
Within four days, Graham Police Department took more than 40 grams of drugs off the streets, according to a press release.
Fourth St. arrest
On Saturday, March 30, Officer Daniel Huerta stopped a pedestrian walking in the 1300 block of Fourth St. for a violation of the Texas Transportation Code. When Huerta exited his vehicle to make contact with the pedestrian, he noticed the male had his hands inside the pockets of his sweatshirt. As Huerta approached the male, he observed the pedestrian drop a cellphone bag to the ground from his sweatshirt.
The 44-year-old male, Lloyd Wayne Wood, of Graham, was detained and Huerta located the cellphone bag. Inside of the bag, Huerta found a crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine. The weight of the suspected methamphetamine was approximately 6.3 grams. Wood was placed under arrest for Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1, over four grams but under 200 grams, a second degree felony and transported to the Young County Jail.
“Within four days, these three officers have taken almost 40 grams of poison off our streets,” Interim Police Chief Brent Bullock wrote. “This poison is more often the root cause of our burglaries, assaults and thefts. It tears families apart and causes individuals to lose everything they have worked their entire life for. I would like to definitely commend these officers and all our officers for their dedication to the fight and for the outstanding work they do on a daily basis.”
