SCU Arrests Three in Drug Case

August 2, 2010 by Bailey Urban

Weatherford-Parker County Special Crimes Unit investigators arrested three suspects in connection with distributing Oxycontin.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said Special Crimes Unit investigators conducted an undercover operation, where they made a purchase this week of Oxycontin from a male suspect, identified as Christian Hito Vandeloo, 21, of Springtown.

During an undercover purchase on Monday, July 26, 2010, Vandeloo told a subject to meet him in Springtown at a church parking lot on North Main Street in Springtown to conduct the deal. Once the transaction had been completed, undercover officers arrested Vandeloo and a female suspect, identified as Ellen Leigh Yates, 21, of Springtown, who was driving the vehicle.

Vandeloo and Yates were arrested and taken to the Parker County Jail. Both suspects were charged with Manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance one to four grams in a drug-free zone.

Vandeloo’s and Yates’ bonds were set at $20,000 each. As of Thursday afternoon, both suspects remained incarcerated. Sheriff Fowler said the case will be forwarded to the Parker County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of prosecution.

SCU investigators said Vandeloo identified himself as a gang member with gang affiliations to the “Bloods,” and chose the area to make the drug transaction where a playground was located within about 50 feet, enhancing the charge to a drug-free zone.

SCU Investigators seized the Oxycontin pills, digital scales and other drugs paraphernalia from the suspects and the suspect vehicle. The third suspect’s identity is not available at this time.
