Each of the individuals remained in the Hunt County Detention Center as of press time Monday, being held on $650,000 bond each. Each of them were being held on one count each of manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 1, in an amount of between 200 and 400 grams; manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 1, in an amount of more than 400 grams; manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 1, in an amount of between four and 200 grams; possession of marijuana between four ounces and five pounds; and two counts of manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 2, in an amount of between four and 200 grams.
