New Form of Meth Found in Drug Bust of Lubbock Home

A convicted felon and his common law wife are facing drug charges after authorities made an unexpected visit to their central Lubbock home Thursday. NewsChannel 11's Jennifer Vogel tells us what DPS narcotic agents and the ATF found inside.

"Everything came together today. We executed an arrest warrant along with a search warrant," said one undercover agent. DPS narcotics along with the ATF collected guns, ammunition, cash and drugs. "Meth, crystal meth, and crack cocaine" were among the confiscated items.

Children were found in the home and are now staying with family as both of their parents are in custody on drug charges. The agencies got a tip that drugs were being sold from this home on 35th and Nashville. They began an investigation and found enough evidence to obtain a search warrant, and when they began to search, they found "ice," a pure form of methamphetamine that is becoming extremely popular.

"Years ago meth was made with pseudoephedrine in local labs, now we're getting it in the crystallized form which we believe is being smuggled from outside the country. It's a lot more prevalent now, it's easier to obtain and very popular," said the undercover agent.

Two-ounces of "ice" were seized. That's a street value of $3,000. The couple arrested, Robert DeLeon and Melissa Pardo, face charges of possession and intent to deliver. DeLeon also had an outstanding warrant for a parole violation. If convicted, he faces no less than 20 years in prison.
