On Tuesday, March 20, a Houston police officer pulled over a vehicle traveling east on Interstate 10 in relation to a traffic violation. The 50-year-old Houston driver was pulled over around 8:00 a.m. on the highway.

As police approached the man’s vehicle, the odor of marijuana was detected. A search of the vehicle revealed a bag containing 2 kilos of cocaine, and approximately 115 pounds of marijuana were discovered in the back seat in two separate trash bags. These illegal drugs are valued at $250,000.

The Houston man was taken to the Calcasieu Correctional Center where he faces charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of cocaine in excess of 400 grams. His bail was set at $70,000.

Last week, a Houston pharmacist was arrested and charged with delivery of a controlled substance.  The pharmacist was employed at the Richmond Professional Pharmacy on the 1600 block of Main Street.

An undercover police officer made the discovery that the licensed and registered pharmacist was illegally distributing drugs.  The officer claims to have been able to get several Xanax and LorTab pills from the pharmacist in unmarked bottles delivered in a cardboard box.

Since his arrest, the pharmacist surrendered DEA and DPS controlled substance registration numbers used at the pharmacy and another pharmacy he owns in Rosenberg.  In addition, he has surrendered his personal Texas State Board of Pharmacy license number.  He was released from holding on a $20,000 bond.
