Multi-warrant raid lead to drug discovery

On Friday, Sept. 18, around 8:30 p.m., the full staff of the Falls County Sheriff Department served multiple warrants around the City of Marlin. 

They entered a house on each the east and west side of Marlin, leading to the discovery of multiple facts. 

Falls County Sheriff Ricky Scaman says he's one step closer to putting one of Falls County's biggest drug dealers behind bars with this act, according to reports.

The home on the east side of town is suspected to be used as a “cook house” for crack cocaine, the cheaper alternative to methamphetamine.

"I don't know if it's because the price of methamphetamine is driving the cocaine and crack cocaine comeback, but I can definitely say that's most likely the culprit," Scaman told KXXV. 

The initial search of the house on the west side of town exposed narcotics, illegal prescriptions, as well as other items. 

Both houses have been used by the unnamed dealer, according to multiple department sources. 

A second search of the house on the west side of town yielded two large bags of crack cocaine, along with identification for the unnamed dealer.
