The two were arrested at the scene after the search and officials said the search warrant stemmed from felony charges in Winnsboro within Wood County, however the alleged suspect lived in Winnsboro within Franklin County.

“These illegal firearms and over 8.5 grams of methamphetamine, in a drug free zone, have been removed from the streets, and the warrants were executed flawlessly,” Winnsboro Police said. “This was a high risk search and arrest warrant that was performed meticulously and carried out safely in a matter of seconds.”

Officials said this could not have happened without the interdepartmental cooperation between the Winnsboro Police Department, Winnsboro ISD Police Department, DPS, the Texas Rangers, the Franklin County Sheriff and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team.

The two arrested from the search and arrest warrant have not been identified at this time.
