SHERMAN, Tex. -- Grayson County authorities seized thousands of dollars worth of drugs in a bust late last week.
Investigators say a tip and surveillance led them to 27-year-old Robert E. Godwin. Godwin stands now accused of selling marijuana out of his home on Calais Street in Sherman. Investigators say Godwin appeared to be weighing and packaging the drug for distribution when they arrived.
Around twenty-five pounds of marijuana and $12,000 were seized in Friday’s bust. Deputies say the money was in a gun safe at the home.
They also say Godwin was carrying an additional $2,000 on him. Sheriff Keith Gary says Godwin and his two daughters live with his parents. Both children are now in the care of child protective services.
"The thing I guess that bothers me the most is that we have two small children involved with drug activities going on. And also, it's hard to understand how parents, or grandparents in this case, could allow such a thing to go on,” Grayson County Sheriff Keith Gary said
The street value of the marijuana was estimated to be around $25,000. Godwin was released on bond. If convicted, he faces up to fifteen years in prison.
