Two people were arrested Tuesday night on drug and child endangerment charges, and in an unrelated case, two more suspects were arrested following last month’s seizure of marijuana plants near May.
Sheriff’s deputies, assisted by Brownwood police, served a search warrant Tuesday night in the 1100 block of Lamonte in Brownwood, sheriff’s Sgt. Tony Aaron said.
Adriana Carrillo, 20, and Uriel Ramirez, 21, were charged with one count each of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance under 1 gram in a drug-free zone and endangering a child, Brown County Jail records state.
Lawmen obtained a search warrant because they believed methamphetamine was being sold at the home, Aaron said.
He said he did not know the age of the child who was present but said the child was under 3.
In the case involving marijuana, Edward Standerfer, 42, surrendered to sheriff’s officials Monday on a warrant for possession of marijuana over 4 ounces and under 5 pounds.
Deputy Scott Bird arrested Standerfer’s ex-wife, Maria Standerfer, 34, Tuesday on a warrant for possession of a controlled substance under 1 gram.
Jimmy Harrell, 45; Steven Harrell, 46; and Jason Harrell, 23, surrendered last week on warrants for possession of marijuana.
Deputies said they seized the marijuana plants, which ranged in height from 3 to 8 feet, from several properties on Pleasant Valley Road, a few miles south of May, on Sept. 20.
