Magnolia, May 29 – On May 28, 2019, Deputies with the Montgomery County Precinct 5 Constables Department under the leadership of Constable Chris Jones went to 27827 Branding Iron Lane and executed a Court Order directing Deputies to remove all people from the property that failed to leave after an Eviction was granted to the property owner.
Deputies made contact with multiple individuals at the address on Branding Iron upon arrival. The first individual that the Deputies attempted to speak to was identified as Daniel Curry.
Curry immediately put his hand in his pocket and started to walk away from the Deputies. Curry was patted down for officer safety due to his demeanor, previous law enforcement encounters and gang affiliation.
While patting down Curry something was felt to be in his pockets and with Curry’s permission a baggie containing Methamphetamine was pulled from his pocket. Curry also had a Warrant for his arrest for non-payment of child support. (Gosh, even Walter H. White always took care of his family!)
During the court ordered eviction process more narcotics were found on the property that were claimed by other people on location. Samantha Mallon and Daniel Curry were found to have 73.5 grams of a liquid substance and 4.5 grams of a clear rock like substance that both field tested positive for Methamphetamine.
While on scene, a female identified as Jamie Briner pulled into the driveway and spoke with Deputies. During the conversation, the deputies noticed a baggie containing Methamphetamine in her vehicle door. The substance weighed .5 grams and also field tested positive for Methamphetamine.
While searching Briner’s vehicle, a backpack was found with a Texas ID inside of it and 4.1 grams of crushed up Xanax pills. A short while later, a female walked up from down the street claiming that her backpack was in Briner’s vehicle. The ID in the backpack did belong to the female and she was identified as Stephanie Sandstedt.
Curry and Mallon were arrested for first degree felony possession of a controlled substance for the Methamphetamine. Briner was arrested on a state jail felony for possession of a controlled substance for her Methamphetamine and Sandstedt was arrested for Misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance for her Xanax.
Deputies took Curry, Mallon, Briner and Sandstedt to the Montgomery County Jail where they were booked in and are currently being held with bond.
Constable Chris Jones comments, “The Precinct 5 Constable’s Office will take every opportunity to remove Narcotics from our great community, even while serving court ordered process. With continued support from the county commissioners and citizens, we can keep making Montgomery County a great place to live.”
