LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock County Grand Jury has indicted Jerry Thomas and Diane Avery, both of Denver, on intent to knowingly possess a usable quantity of marijuana in an amount of 50 pounds or less but more than five pounds. 

Both Thomas and Avery were arrested by a Texas Department of Public Safety state trooper on March 18 after he found marijuana, oxycodone, Xanax, a meth pipe, a marijuana pipe and open containers of alcohol. The indictment for the two came on Tuesday.

According to a police report from DPS, the arresting officer noticed Avery roll down the window of the gray Dodge Caravan Thomas was driving and throw something out. When the officer pulled the van over he noticed the strong marijuana smell coming out and then searched the vehicle. 

When the officer searched the van he found 6.3 pounds of marijuana in luggage, two oxycodone pills, four Xanaxs, a meth pipe in another passengers purse, six drug prescription pills in Avery's purse, four more containers of marijuana and multiple opened Coors Light containers. 

Both have since been released from the Lubbock County Detention Center but were being held on a $5,000 bond.
