Kudos to the Amarillo Police Department for doing their best and keeping our streets and city safe.  The APD recently made a huge drug bust in a home in San Jacinto.

The Amarillo Police Narcotics department served a warrant on Monday, January 3rd. The home where the warrant was served was located in the 800 block of South Mississippi.  During the warrant search APD found and seized 9 1/2 pounds of methamphetamines, 3 pounds of marijuana, 4.3 grams of crack cocaine.  They also seized an assault rifle.

The APD also arrested two persons involved.  Sammy Barrow Jr. age 48 and Narvella Mitchell, age 40, were both charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute 500 grams or more.  This was also filed at the federal level, the charge fell into the PSN zone, which is the Project Safe Neighborhood.  More charges could be filed as the investigation continues.

This charge could come with a minimum of 5 years in a federal prison with a maximum of 40 years, with at lease 4 years of parole/probation and a fine of up to $5,000,000.
