( 4UMF NEWS ) DEA Agent’s Daughter Busted For Drug Trafficking:
A 19-year-old Texas woman arrested on drug trafficking charges is the daughter of a Drug Enforcement Administration agent, officials said Wednesday.
Police cuffed Sarah Furay on Nov. 6 after officers said they found 31 grams of cocaine, 126 grams of high-grade marijuana, 29 “ecstasy” tablets, methamphetamine and 60 doses of an LSD-like drug in her bedroom, according to the College Station Police Department.
The Death and Taxes blog revealed late last month that her father Bill Furay serves as a DEA supervisory special agent. DEA spokeswoman Barbara Carreno told KAGS-TV Wednesday that Bill Furay works out of the agency’s Houston office and started at the DEA more than 20 years ago.
“The Furay family is dealing with this private matter as best they can,” Carreno said in a statement.
A College Station Municipal Court judge approved a warrant to search the younger Furay’s home on Nov. 5 after an investigation into drug sales at the apartment, according to a probable cause statement released by police.
Officers said she admitted she had cocaine and marijuana when they arrived. The cops found packaging material, two digital scales and a handwritten drug price list in the bedroom in addition to the drug cache, cops said. Furay’s phone also showed “numerous texts” with her peddling coke, MDMA, acid, weed and other drugs, according to the court documents.
The Houston Chronicle called Furay’s mugshot at Brazos County jail “one of the jolliest mugshots in recent history” and hailed it as the “happiest mugshot in America” last month.
She was released on a $39,000 bond and now faces felony charges of manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance and drug possession.
