    Seriously! Hey, the drug trade is a regulated industry. There’s too much money involved to completely shut it down. Don’t be fooled “rozeygm”… this is just smoke and mirrors. Law enforcement has to make a big bust from time to time in order to stay a legit in the public’s eye.

    We moved here from Huffam, Tx. To get away from a drug house next door to us. Now we find that another one is in our new subdivision. You move to another place and put a lot of money into your new home and this happens. Need better enforcement at our borders. Glad to see that DEA and Montgomery County law enforcement was here, just keep up the good work and keep looking into this neighborhood. There are more large houses and wonder house they afford them.
