Deputies seize large quantity of Ecstasy

After stepping drug interdiction efforts several weeks ago, Hopkins County deputies made another large siezure Wednesday night, according to Sheriff Lewis Tatum.

“Interdiction officer Sgt. Harry Washington was working with Criminal Investigator Sgt. Wade Sheets on Interstate 30 and made contact with a person identified as Trujillo “Nero” Alejandro Jr., 17, out of Tornillo, Texas,” the sheriff said. “The officers recovered what is believed to be 563 grams of ecstacy from Alejandro.”

The drug was in pill form, and deputies were still counting the pills and confirming the contents at mid-moring Thursday.

This latest bust adds to the number of drug recoveries and siezures of more than $300,000 cash suspected to be used in drug trafficking in the past few weeks.

“Since Sgt. Washington has come on board to work with us, he has done quite a good job,” Tatum said. “He is teaching us a lot. Like Investigator Sheets, the other guys are real enthused about working with Sgt. Washington and learning from him. I think it’s a good deal.”
