Georgetown's serene façade was pierced last week as the Williamson County Sheriff's Office made a splash in the local drug scene, busting three individuals and seizing an arsenal of substances and firearms. The raid, a precisely executed operation involving the Organized Crime Unit, SWAT, and K9s, yanked about 4.5 pounds of suspected marijuana, 3.7 grams of suspected cocaine, and multiple grams of methamphetamine and fentanyl from the grip of the streets, as reported by CBS Austin.

The strike, which was to swiftly take place on April 18 on Pinnacle Drive, also dredged up roughly 140.7 grams of suspected THC, $13,000 in cash, and a duo of handguns complete with magazines and ammunition. Trove also included drug trafficking paraphernalia and cell phones, marking a significant hit to the local drug trade, as per CBS Austin.

Caught in the net were three individuals, now facing a range of charges. Patrick Jones, 28, might have to explain the controlled substances and illegally held firearms after being slapped with charges for manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Shirley Erickson, 37, and Izaiah Miller, 18, are staring down their charges for manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance, as detailed by CBS Austin.
