E-T Staff Report Two young children were removed from their home after their parents were arrested on drug charges shortly before midnight Wednesday.
Tony Saucillo Jr., 23, and his wife, Andrea LaVonne Holt, 25, were taken into custody after a tactical team with the Stephenville Police Department executed a search warrant at the couple's home located on Lingleville Road.
Captain Jason King said the arrests were made after an investigation by detectives. King said a substance believed to be methamphetamine was found in “a common area of the house.”
Child Protective Services was called to the scene and the children were removed from the home and released to relatives, King said.
Saucillo was charged with delivery of a controlled substance over one gram but less than four grams. Holt was charged with possession of a controlled substance over four grams.
They were released from the Erath County Jail after posting a $20,00 bond each.
