Police in North Austin claim that after inspecting a man's residence on Oct. 15, they discovered more than 40 pounds of cocaine. According to reports, an investigation was reportedly prompted after authorities allegedly observed people trafficking drugs in Dessau Road's Branch Creek mobile home community. In addition to the Austin Police Department, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI and the Texas Department of Public Safety were involved in the investigation.
Police reportedly received permission to search a 26-year-old's mobile home through a Spanish translator. In the home, the police allege that they found multiple packets of cocaine enclosed in wrappers inside some clothing and cardboard boxes. The man now faces a first-degree felony indictment for possessing controlled substances.
