The San Saba Police Department and the District Attorney's Office were in court on February 11th. They were prepared for another jury trial on illegal narcotics.
Elise Landerous Huron of San Saba was charged with two counts of Delivery of a Controlled Substance (methamphetamine). Huron pled guilty to both charges and received five years in prison for each charge. Both charges are to run concurrently.
The police department and the District Attorney's Office have been working hard on narcotic related cases and have been getting great results in court. Officer Brown related that the work of District Attorney Sam Oatman and Assistant District Attorney Rudy Taylor has been outstanding. The District Attorney's Office realizes that narcotic related cases are a big problem, not only in San Saba County, but all over central Texas, and they have been coming down especially hard on all of these particular cases.
The police department will continue to aggressively pursue both buyers and sellers of illegal narcotics. They intend to move these cases as swiftly as possible into the court system.
If you have any information concerning a narcotics issue, please contact the San Saba Police Department, Sheriff's Department, or the District Attorney's Office.
Also, if you know someone who has a substance abuse problem, please contact the police department as well. It is better to assist these individuals in getting the help they need before it is forced upon them.
