Each person arrested was charged with unlawful possession of controlled substance (meth), unlawful possession of marijuana 2, possession of drug paraphernalia and illegal possession of prescription drugs.

Valley Police Department Major Mike Reynolds said any time there are drugs on the street, it should be a concern for everyone. 

“It’s good to get these drugs out of the area, just because of the safety concern,” he said. “We have reports every year of people overdosing and dying because of drugs. A lot of our criminal activity is also tied to the drug trade,”

Huddleston ($7,5000 bond), Morgan ($5,000 bond), Love ($10,000 bond), Banks (no bond) and Noon ($12,500 bond) were all listed on the Chambers County Jail website on Thursday morning.
