Arrests made after drugs found in baby's diaper bag

Posted:

     A man and woman were arrested with drugs hidden in a diaper bag after a traffic stop along U.S. Highway 82 Wednesday morning. Grayson County Sheriff's Office had been conducting a one-month investigation into drug activity involving Ashli Darlene Puckett, 31 of Durant, and Jared Asher Brown, 32 of Durant.
     GCSO reports state that Deputy Mark Haning performed a traffic stop on U.S. 82 near Gage Road just outside of Sherman. As he approached the car, Deputy Haning observed pills inside the vehicle in plain sight. The two in the car also had a 1-year-old baby along for the ride.
     Haning then discovered the suspects had outstanding warrants and the woman was immediately placed under arrest. A K-9 dog from Gunter PD arrived and sniffed the vehicle for drugs. Inside, deputies found a clear plastic baggie with crystal residue inside, more than 600 Sudafed tablets in the diaper bag, and a syringe with an unknown residue. Police arrested Brown and transported both suspects to the Grayson County Jail. The 1-year-old was placed in the care of a family member.
     Puckett was jailed for criminal trespass of a habitation, abandon and endangering of a child, and possession of a controlled substance under one gram. She remains in Grayson County Jail on $15,341 in fines. Brown was placed into jail for abandon and endangering a child, possession of controlled substance under one gram, and engaging in organized crime. He remains in the Grayson Jail on $27,500 bond.
