Warrants lead to arrest of four suspects
By Scott Harvey
Commerce – Two search warrants executed by Commerce Police over the weekend have resulted in four arrests.
The first warrant was performed Sunday morning, according to Commerce Police Chief Kerry Crews.
Two men were reportedly kicked out of a party in the 2200 block of Pecan Street. They returned with a firearm and forced their way into the apartment, beating a victim in the process. The men then fled the apartment to another residence in the 1300 block of Monroe. When they refused to come out of the apartment, Commerce PD secured the area. They then were able to obtain a search warrant which led to the arrest of both men.
The suspects are being held in the Hunt County Jail, charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Their identities are being withheld pending arraignment.
In an unrelated case, officers Monday morning obtained a search warrant for an apartment at Durham Homes for suspected narcotics. During the search, two adults, identified as Jason Lee Finch, 28, and Jacqueline Trinez Amos, 23, were found in possession of between four ounces and five pounds of marijuana.
Each is being held on $20,000 bond apiece in the Hunt County Jail. Two children were also inside. They were placed in the care of Child Protective Services.
