PORTER, Texas April 14 2012- An investigation led Harris County Precinct 4 Constables to arrest a special needs teacher’s aide on drug charges.
Authorities said they got a tip that Maureen Hicks, 53, was selling drugs from her home in the 22,100 block of Spears Road off of Loop 494 in Porter.
Deputies went to Porter Elementary and spoke to Hicks who agreed to take them to her home.
She admitted to having approximately 1.5 ounces of marijuana inside but refused to give consent for investigators to search her home.
K-9 units were called out and found Hicks had marijuana inside her car. Moments later deputies obtained a search warrant and found multiple bags containing marijuana, two marijuana grinders, a smoking pipe and a .40 caliber handgun.
Hicks was arrested and taken to the Montgomery County jail.
She is charged with possession of marijuana in a drug free zone, not only for having the drugs but also because her home is next door to a church’s daycare center.
