(SPLENDORA, TX) – Two brothers are charged in the manufacture and possession of methamphetamine and marijuana after a Montgomery County narcotics investigation.
Jimmy Edward Myers, 52, and Russell Eugene Myers, 50, were arrested on August 9.
Investigators allege Jimmy Myers sold methamphetamine from his Splendora home in the 15000 block of Tyler Ln., and deployed a drug dog to search the exterior of his home after obtaining an arrest warrant.
The K-9 unit allegedly discovered the odor of illegal drugs in the vehicle, the Montgomery County Pct. 4 Constable’s Office said.
After a search, deputies accused Jimmy Myers of possessing methamphetamine, as well as a large digital scale and a large quantity of plastic bags inside his residence.
Deputies said during the investigation Jimmy’s brother Russell Myers also became a suspect.
An additional arrest warrant was obtained for the home in the 27900 block of Pin Oak, in Splendora.
Russell Myers allegedly admitted to investigators to possessing a “large quantity of marijuana” in his home.
Investigators accuse Russell Myers of keeping approximately 10 lbs. of marijuana, divided among 37 plastic bags, inside the residence.
Constable Kenneth Rowdy said he realizes the arrest of the Myers brothers does not stop the flow of illegal drugs in the area, but its progress.
“We’re sending a message to others who are dealing drugs here that we’re not letting up, and sooner or later, they’ll find themselves behind bars,” Rowdy said.
James Edward Myers is charged with first-degree felony possession of a controlled substance of more than four grams, but less than 200 grams; first-degree felony manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance; and second-degree felony manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance.
Russell Eugene Myers is charged with third-degree felony possession of marijuana, more than five lbs. but less than 50 lbs.
