On Monday, the Montgomery County Precinct 5 Constables Department and Department of Public Safety Special Agents executed a search warrant at 23302 Brushy Pines in the Hockley area of Montgomery County.

In January 2015 the Precinct 5 Constables had executed a search warrant at this same address and seized over 100 grams of methamphetamines from Shane Burrell, 33.

Just a couple months after Burrell was released on parole from a year and a half prison stay, authorities say he was back in business at the same location. When the Precinct 5 Constables searched the house they found 12 people on location.
