by Huntsville PD staff
The Huntsville Police Department received information on Tuesday, April 3rd, that led to the arrest of three suspects on charges of manufacturing/delivery of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Lt. Curt Landrum advised that an alert Huntsville patrol officer sparked a surveillance operation on a local residence. During the investigation, detectives were able to obtain a search warrant for the residence. A subsequent search of the residence revealed 27 doses of LSD (a potent hallucinogenic drug), one and a half pounds of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia. Additionally, detectives seized over $1,200 in cash, which is believed to be proceeds from the sale of the illegal drugs.
Detectives arrested Mark Ryan Waddell, 20, Amy Danielle Kramer, 20, and Joshua Dale Yost, 27, for manufacturing/delivery of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a class C misdemeanor. Additionally, Yost was charged with failing to identify, a class B misdemeanor.
A felony of the 2nd degree is punishable by imprisonment in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for a period of 2 to 20 years and a possible fine not to exceed $10,000. A class B misdemeanor is punishable by confinement in jail for a period of up to 180 days and a possible fine not to exceed $2,000. A class C misdemeanor is punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.
Lt. Landrum added that more charges may be filed at a later time, as the investigation continues.
