Arrests in Cash Community Over Bath Salts, Meth

Three persons were taken into custody by the Hunt County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Division working with the Terrell and Greenville Police Departments in the 5300 block of Highway 34 South around noon Thursday.

Budz's Smoke Shop is where a search warrant was executed, and investigators seized illegal K-2 and bath salt products at the business, as well as an undisclosed about of money.

The following charges were filed on the subjects:

  • Melisa Rene Reaves Age 23 of Wills Point was arrested and charged with Possession With Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance PG2 Over 400g (K-2) which is a first degree felony. Possession of a Controlled substance PG2 Under 1g (Bath Salt) which is a state jail felony and Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance PG2 Over 1g and Under 4g (Bath Salt) which is a second degree felony.
  • Robert Rabon Age 51 of Hugo, Oklahoma was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance PG1 Over 1g and Under 4g (Methamphetamine) which is a third degree felony and Possession of a Controlled Substance PG2(Bath Salt) over 1g and Under 4g which is a third degree felony.
  • Roberto David Robb Age 50 of Hugo, Oklahoma was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance PG1 Over 1g and Under 4g (Methamphetamine) which is a third degree felony.

From the Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks:

“I want to thank all agencies involved in the execution of this search warrant. I also want to thank an unnamed reader of the Herald Banner who contacted Reporter Brad Keller and gave us a tip that these illegal items were being sold. It never ceases to amaze me how people will continue to sell and buy illegal narcotics just to make a buck and to get high. Of all things, it seems someone would have enough sense to realize that bath salt will kill you. However, as many times as I have issued the warning “that if you are going to sell illegal drugs in Hunt County, we are going to hunt you down and put you in jail” there are still some folks who evidently don’t believe me. So, we will continue to fight the war on illegal drugs in Hunt County.”
