TITUS COUNTY, TX - A 20-year-old Titus County man was arrested Monday afternoon at approximately 5:00P.M. (December 28, 2009) by Titus County sheriff deputies, after the man delivered (sold) more than 1 gram but less than four grams of a controlled substance.

Elijah Sims, of County Road 4670, Pittsburg, was arrested and charged with a second degree felony charge of delivery of a controlled substance. "The sheriff's office developed information that a narcotics transaction would be taking place in the 1500 block of South Jefferson in Mt. Pleasant",  said Sheriff Tim Ingram. "Our deputies had the location under surveillance, and also had an undercover officer present during the transaction in which the controlled substance was delivered (sold).  Mr. Sims was immediately arrested after delivering or selling a substance believed to be crack cocaine to an individual," said Ingram.

Delivery of a controlled substance of more than 1 gram but less than four grams is a violation of the Texas Health and Safety Code; a second degree felony, punishable upon conviction by imprisonment for up to twenty years and/or a fine not to exceed $10,000.

Sims is already on probation in Titus County for theft of property over $1500.00, burglary of a building, and two counts of robbery.

At the time of this media release, Sims remained in the Titus County jail, pending being charged by a Titus County magistrate, and bond being set.
