Titus County Sheriff's office arrested eight suspects after an investigation that led to a narcotics search warrant in Mt. Pleasant.
On Saturday, The Titus County Sheriff's Office executed the warrant in the 4000 block of FM 1735, after an investigation found that probable cause existed.
A search of the resident revealed drug paraphernalia and methamphetamines.
The following persons were arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance:
Ira Williams Price, 34 Tony Ray Walker, 37 Jerod Jerome Hendrix, 24, Kieera Denice Evans, 22 Terra Marie Schmerber, 25 Christina Rene Cartledge, 29 Traci Marie Hooper, 27 Breanna MCLaren, 19
Possession of a Controlled Substance is a State Jail Felony and the eight suspects face up to two years in a state jail and a fine up to $10,000.
After the suspects were transported to the Titus County Jail, jail staff noticed Ira Price was showing signs of possible overdose, he was transported to Titus Regional Medical Center for evaluation. Price was then placed in the Intensive Care Unit and his prognosis is unknown at this time.
Authorities are still investigating this case, however, it appears that Price ate a large amount of Meth when the search warrant was executed to prevent arrest.
