PHILLIPS,JOYCELAFAYEMembers of the Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden’s Office raided and arrested a familiar face Thursday.

Around sunset, Pct. 4 Deputies went to the 12600 block of Anmar Drive in Splendora to execute a search warrant on a known drug dealer, who is well-known to that agency. Constable Hayden said it was the third time they have dealt with 66-year-old Joyce Phillips since Hayden took office in 2009.

In 2011, Precinct 4 executed a search warrant at Phillips’ prior residence, where she was arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance along with her boyfriend, 55-year-old Phillip Lewis.

In 2012, Precinct 4 Arrested Joyce Phillips at the same residence for Manufacture / Delivery of a Controlled Substance, and that arrest cost her more than legal fees.

“With the cooperation and help of the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, we (the county and the DA’s office) seized her property,” Hayden said. “It was sold and she moved on.”

“A couple of years later, she’s back and we’re having to deal with the same activity again,” he said.

On Thursday, Phillips was charged with three counts of Manufacture / Delivery of a Controlled Substance.

Philip Lewis was arrested and charged with two counts of Manufacture / Delivery of a Controlled Substance.

Hayden said Phillips does not own her residence this time, but her other assets would again be seized.

“We’ve been in constant communication with the District Attorney’s Office,” he said. “It’s time for the justice system to take care of this problem in our community.”

Hayden said his office has invested many manpower hours and a lot of taxpayer dollars into stopping Phillips from selling prescription pain pills, including Soma and Hydrocodone. The constable said their investigation indicated Phillips had people who obtained the pills and then sold them to her so she could resell them for a profit.

“The problem with that is, she could be selling to anybody,” Hayden said. “She doesn’t care – If you’ve got money, she will sell you pills.”

“If it’s your kids, she doesn’t care,” he said.

While Precinct 4 was on scene executing the search warrant, about a half dozen vehicles showed up, presumably to buy illegal narcotics. Some of them already had warrants.

Investigators seized a substantial amount of cash and removed vehicles from the property.

“She doesn’t work, but has numerous vehicles,” Hayden said. “Unfortunately, helping people self-destruct is a lucrative business.”

    Lastcounry what should the police should if done? Just continue to let her deal because theres bigger fish to get? One step at a time. And there are probably so many of them with guns because u may not know alot of drug dealing trash alot of timea comsume drugs too. And while on drugs sometimes will pick up a gun and shoot whoever is coming thru the door. So the more people they bring the better. U know so much about what they should do and who to go after what are you doing about whats happening in

    Must have been some 15 years ago I was doing research for next Sundays sermon and came across a disturbing girlie website by what looked like a 70 year old woman. She could have been 35 but years of smoking made her look twice her age. Always had a cigarette in her hand or her mouth as she wore loose garments allowing the visitor to gaze down her blouse while she did her gardening and such. She must have belonged to a bowling league because, while she kept her ball in its’ bag in the closet, she carried 2 spare pins hidden in her shirt – similar to a card dealer spiriting away special cards up his sleeve.

    One of the benefits of her site wast the ability to download a monthly (bowling)pin-up calendar of her wrinkled beauty. I did so, printed one out, and presented it to pal Brian mentioning, “Don’t laugh… Some day if you live long enough this will look good to you.” after which he (then without girlfriend) chimed, “Hey, that looks good to me now!”

    I shudder having to live that long for that to be the case for me.
