Drug operation may have targeted young adults

JEFFERSON COUNTY- by Haley Bull

Deputies found a large amount of narcotics in a Beaumont home and believe some of it may have been targeted at young adults.

It began with a tip that led investigators with the Jefferson County Narcotics Task Force to a house in the 3900 block of Sunbury St. in Beaumont Thursday.

"Wasn't expecting all of this," Captain Troy Tucker said.

Behind the shutters, a mushroom growing operation and a lot more.

"We have a drug called DMT that is new to this area," Tucker said.

DMT is a a hallucinogen, but that was just the start. Investigators also found 7 lb. of hydroponic marijuana, 25 "Molly" pills, or ecstasy, hallucinogenic mushrooms, 25 gallons of liquid containing THC and more than $10,000 in cash.

"We kind of suspect from the stuff that was found that some of the stuff that was being produced is targeted for younger age drug users," Jefferson County Sheriff Mitch Woods said.

Investigators also found Lego-block shaped jello candies, laced with THC.

"It was a considerably detailed operation and being conducted with a good bit of knowledge as to how to extract some of this THC from marijuana and turn it into the products that you see here," Woods said.

Products seized from the house, now evidence of what investigators called a local drug operation.

"This is home grown, this is our target," Tucker said.

Deputies arrested 32-year old Conrad Hammon of Beaumont. He was jailed and released on a $10,000 bond on a felony marijuana possession charge.

"There were approximately five subjects that were at the residence when we were there but one of them confessed it was his operation," Tucker said.

The operation, now stopped.

Investigators said they could file more charges depending on the outcome of tests on what they seized.
