62 grams of meth seized in Gatesville drug bust, two arrested

Posted:
GATESVILLE -

Gatesville officers seized 62 grams of methamphetamine and arrested two people after executing a search warrant in the 1800 block of East Leon St. in the early morning hours on Thursday.

28-year-old Mandi Kay Holden and 33-year-old Merton Lamont Barnwell were charged with possession with intent to deliver over 4 grams but under 200 grams. Barnwell was also charged with possession with intent to deliver under 1 gram, which stems from an earlier investigation.

Holden and Barnwell were arrested and officers seized 62 grams of what is believed to be methamphetamine from the home.

The search was a culmination of a 6 month ongoing investigation. The search warrant was executed by officers from the Coryell County Sheriff's Office, Gatesville Police Department, Heart of Texas Auto Theft Task Force, McGregor Police Department, and McLennan County K-9 Unit.

Holden and Barnwell are both being held in the Coryell County Jail.
