As small of a town Ballinger is, we experience a lot of traffic from all directions! The BPD have been working diligently to stop as much narcotics distribution and trafficking in our hometown. Here’s what’s been happening between late April and early May:
12.7 grams – Xanax equaled to approximately 40 pills and must be prescribed.
8.1 grams – Methamphetamine
20.98 oz. of Marijuana
1,048.9 grams of THC oils and waxes (tetrahydrocannabinol)
Street value differs from area to area but approximately $400,000 worth of narcotics were taken off of Ballinger streets and the State of Texas!
The above were all seized from local residents as well as out-of-towners. Every person associated with the above infractions were arrested and transported to the Runnels County Jail. All persons are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
We will keep you posted as much as possible on happenings in our town, regarding keeping all of us safe in our homes!
