11 arrested in drug operation

March 21, 2014 by Randy Keck

From the Parker County Sheriff's Dept
Weatherford-Parker County Special Crimes Unit investigators arrested 11 people in connection with a drug distribution operation, following a five month-long undercover investigation.

The investigation stemmed from an anonymous tip of methamphetamine possession and use.
SCU investigators said large quantities of methamphetamine were being purchased and distributed in Western Lake Estates, and stretching from Tarrant County to Palo Pinto County.

SCU investigators said the suspects have been charged with engaging in organized criminal activity for the manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance.

Five additional individuals are currently under investigation stemming from the same operation, with an outstanding warrant for Joseph Chester Sylvis, 31, of Aledo.
The suspects involved who have been charged in the investigation to date include:

• Garcia, Crystal Renea, 33, AKA Southerland, of Mineral Wells – Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity and Manufacture Delivery of a Controlled Substance. Garcia’s bond was set at $47,500. She remains at the Parker County Jail.

Some of the suspects involved were incarcerated for unrelated offenses when the SCU warrants were served, while other warrants were served by the Weatherford-Parker County Fugitive Apprehension Unit. Throughout the investigation, SCU members discovered other crimes of theft and identity theft were being committed by the suspects in order to fund their illegal narcotics operation. Also in the investigation, SCU members seized several ounces of methamphetamine and various narcotics paraphernalia items.

Palo Pinto County Sheriff’s deputies served a warrant for a female suspect connected in the case earlier this week, when they seized an additional 4.5 ounces of methamphetamine from a male suspect found with her, but who was not directly involved in the Parker County investigation.

“There was a continuous stream of drugs and money being used and distributed across Palo Pinto and Tarrant Counties with the majority of the suspects switching residences within Parker County in apparent attempts to evade investigators,” said SCU Commander, Lt. Mike Camp. “They used the profits from their methamphetamine distribution operation and reinvested it into their circle of further narcotics supplies and transactions.”

The suspects implicated themselves to SCU investigators, saying they “pooled” their money together in order to initiate their narcotics operation.
Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler and Weatherford Police Chief Mike Manning said the Special Crimes Unit investigators did an outstanding job of taking a seemingly small tip and developing leads to conduct their investigation.

Each of the cases will be forwarded to the Parker County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of prosecution.
