Investigators with the Erath County Sheriff's Office are seeking arrest warrants for two suspects wanted in connection with last week's drug trafficking bust that netted $1,000 in cash, more than six pounds of hydroponic marijuana, weapons and evidence of marijuana distribution.
"We are in the process of obtaining warrants seeking the arrest of Piyush Mesuria and Jaymee Martin," Investigator Greg Stewart said Tuesday.
Mesuria, 29, and Martin, 24, were reportedly not in their home located in the 1200 block of Paddock Street Aug. 23 when investigators, Stephenville police and inspectors with the U.S. Postal Service executed a search warrant.
The estimated street value of hydroponic marijuana, also known as "dro," is $5,000-$6,000 per pound, Stewart said.
Stewart initially said there were three suspects in the case, but on Tuesday said Mesuria and Martin will be the only two to likely face charges.
