Two people were arrested and five children were taken into the custody of Child Protective Services after police executed the largest methamphetamine raid in Whitney Police history at a home in the west 600 block of Brazos Street in Whitney on Friday.
The raid happened just a few blocks away from Whitney Elementary School and Whitney Intermediate School.
Hill County 66th Judicial District Court Judge Matt Crane recently signed a search and seizure warrant for the narcotics. Then, Whitney and State Park Police executed the warrant and found roughly 70 grams of methamphetamine, along with an unknown amount of marijuana and a large amount of distribution supplies inside the residence, according to a police press release.
Officers arrested Detrick Darnell Walter, 25, for possession of marijuana under two ounces and possession of a controlled substance -- penalty group one. They also arrested Leonotdra Garrett, 36, for manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance. Both Walter and Garrett live in Whitney, authorities said.
CPS took the five children into the state's care at the scene.
Law enforcement said this was the largest seizure of methamphetamines in the Whitney Police Department's history.
