TOOL–Henderson County Deputies and Narcotics Investigators led a nine-member team on a 2 a.m. raid of a home in Tool April 12, where they arrested a pair of drug dealers with a substantial amount of methamphetamines and all the material to sell them.
“Days of solid investigative work by our team leads to these kinds of arrests that are putting drug dealers out of business and behind bars,” Henderson County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse said.
Rodney Blake Bryant, 46, of Tool, was charged with dealing meth, as was Jennifer Denise Noe, 41, of Gun Barrel City.
The two were in a residence in the 8000 block of County Road 2430 in the Tool area when the raid occurred at 2:17 a.m.
“Like others, these two are the conduit between large manufacturers – mostly in Mexico – and our citizens,” Hillhouse said. “Arrests like these stops the contraband flow.”
Narcotics Investigators Gabriel Shue and Kenneth Slaton from Hillhouse’s Office led the raid.
Investigators Ryan Owens, Cynthia Clements, Dustin Smith, Warrants Deputy Matt Jistel, Auto Theft Task Force Investigator Robert Powers, Sgt. Jeremy Rose and Deputy Matthew Reschke rounded out the team that hit the home.
The search warrant was signed by Gun Barrel City Municipal Judge Grace Wallace.
