LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Longview police make a serious drug bust and arrest one suspect in a Longview home turned illegal drug store.  Police responded to a disturbance call at a home in the 800 block of Butler drive late Thursday night. Marijuana, PCP, crack cocaine and other drugs were found inside.

The resident 29 year old Shanda Head evaded officers but was eventually subdued, charged with 3 counts of drug possession and evading arrest.  Police say the PCP-- was of particular concern as it's an extreme hallucinogen.

"Its an old school drug that's a very powerful hallucinogen used. They would smoke it as angel dust, what it was known as previously," says Longview police sergeant Richard Spruiell. "Now they're soaking their marijuana cigars with it then smoking the marijuana cigar and it has a very quick effect on them."  

Head currently remains in Gregg County Jail.
