A lengthy undercover investigation by the Erath County Sheriff department's special crimes unit and criminal investigation department, led to what authorities are calling a major drug bust Wednesday night.
Tiffany Marie Cehand, 17, and Joshua Allen Daniel, 19, both of Stephenville, were arrested and charged with manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance over four grams.
Sheriff Tommy Bryant said authorities executed a search warrant at the couple's home, located on Private Road 1623. When investigators and deputies arrived at the residence, they allegedly found Daniel in the bathroom with a meth pipe, then discovered “a good size amount” of methamphetmane inside the home.
Bryant said Cehand is seven months pregnant and could face more charges if the child tests positive for the drug.
“We will pursue charges of delivery to a child if this child tests positive for meth,” Bryant said.
Cehand and Daniel remain incarcerated in the Erath County Jail. Bond has been set for $30,000 each.
