GROESBECK, Texas (KWTX) A multi-agency raid at around 10 a.m. Tuesday on two homes in Groesbeck led to five arrests and the recovery of more than 670 grams of crack cocaine, 15 ounces of marijuana and more than $6,000 in cash.

“While this operation did not eliminate the narcotics in our community, it was a severe disruption to the sale and distribution in our city and this county,” Groesbeck police Chief Chris Henson said in a Facebook post.

“We will continue to partner with surrounding agencies who have pledged to work with us to make our communities as drug-free as possible.”

The five suspects, whose names weren’t immediately released, were facing charges of manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance and marijuana possession.

The raids were the result of a long-term investigation by Groesbeck police, the Joint Criminal Apprehension Team, which is made up of Groesbeck and Mexia officers.

McLennan and Freestone County deputies and DPS officers assisted in the warrant service Tuesday.
