The estimated street value of the narcotics seized during these warrant executions is $5,000.
"We got five people off the street that were selling drugs, we shut down two houses that were selling narcotics, it's a help for the community, it's a help for the county, it was a great cooperative effort between all the agencies involved to work together, to come to the end," Jeff Price, the Rusk County sheriff, said.
Additional charges of child endangerment and weapons offenses are being investigated. Three minors were in one of those homes, ages 12, 13, and 17. Those minors are in the care of relatives in the area.
These warrants were served as the result of the joint investigation conducted by the Rusk County Sheriff's Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Henderson Police Department, Overton Police Department and the Rusk District Attorney's Office.
