On March 29, 2013, Sergeant Jacob Richardson and deputies with the Wood County Sheriff’s Office executed a narcotics search warrant at a residence on CR 1676 in the Alba area.

This was the result of a lengthy narcotics investigation into the sale of methamphetamine from that house.

During the search of the home, multiple items were discovered that indicated that the home was being used as a selling point for methamphetamine including all the packaging material and cutting material.

Marvin Lee Carr, 56, of Alba was arrested on Wednesday, April 3,  in the Mineola area on an arrest warrant for delivery of a controlled substance stemming from this investigation.

Sgt. Richardson also cleared a 2012 case of a stolen four wheeler with the recovery of the four wheeler and the subsequent return to its rightful owner.

Richardson was also able to close eight additional cases.

Sgt. Carolyn Tanner assisted with the narcotics search warrant and spent the week working a homicide investigation. She was able to close one additional case as well.

Sgt. Kyle Henson was able to close eight cases and continues to work several active investigations.

Why would you put a sign like that up when you could have put up a game camera and photographed any visitors looking to buy drugs? It is as if they were trying to warn the users off, people I would think who would be of interest in identifying others selling drugs.
