A Brownwood man who was arrested after authorities seized 82 grams of methamphetamine  from this home last year was one of 39 people indicted by the January session of the Brownwood County Grand Jury.
    The panel returned indictments for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver in a drug free zone and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon against Terry Blaine Bessent, 34, according to information from District Attorney Micheal Murray’s office.
    A team of law enforcement officials participating in the August 2017 Operation METHodical narcotics roundup from a home in the 900 block of Avenue D, Sheriff Vance Hill said earlier.
    The team, consisting of Brownwood police, sheriff’s deputies and state troopers, went to the home to serve a sealed on indictment on  Bessent — one of 57 suspects named in the operation. 
After arresting Bessent on the indictment, officers had probable cause to obtain a search warrant and found the methamphetamine, Hill said.
    In additional cases:
    • Damon Rayburn, 41, of Brownwood, was indicted for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver in a drug free zone and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
    Sheriff’s investigator Carlyle Gover followed up on a report in June 2017 that an individual was violating a protective order and distributing methamphetamine, sheriff’s officials said earlier. Gover made a traffic stop on a car occupied by Rayburn, the driver, and a female passenger. Gover arrested Rayburn for violating the protective order, which named the female passenger as the protected person, and on misdemeanor warrants.
    Deputy Toby Mathis searched the street in the area of the traffic stop and found a case with 10.6 grams of methamphetamine. Gover believed Rayburn threw the case from his moving vehicle when Gover made the traffic stop.
    Rayburn is also accused by indictment of shooting at a man during the commission of an assault in May 2017.
    • The grand jury returned indictments for criminal mischief, burglary of a building and possession of a controlled substance against Jason Goains, 31, of Comanche, and Cory Heath Walker, 31, of Weatherford, in connection with the May 2017 break-in of two tool sheds in May 2017 and the damaging of two cattle fences near Blanket Creek and U.S. Highway 377.
