A 42-year-old Killeen man was linked with more than 50 grams of crack cocaine and 100 ounces of marijuana after he was arrested on a federal warrant for violating his parole.
Allan Scott Fisher was arraigned Saturday by Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke, who set his bond at $50,000 on a charge of possession of a controlled substance more than 5 grams and less than 200 grams, court records show.
Fisher was arrested around 9:10 p.m. Friday at a car wash in the 3000 block of East Rancier in Killeen, said John Moseley, assistant commander of the Central Texas Narcotics Task Force that spearheaded the arrest, assisted by Killeen police.
More than 5 grams of the cocaine was located in Fisher's body cavity during a body search at the jail, the arrest affidavit states.
"The Narcotics Task Force had been contacted by the United States Marshal's office in regards to an active federal arrest warrant charging Fisher with violation of his federal parole," Moseley said.
At the time of his arrest, Fisher was also found in possession of 108 ounces of marijuana, Moseley said.
Subsequent to Fisher's arrest, Moseley said the Task Force, assisted by members of KPD's Organized Crime Section and Harker Heights police, recovered an additional 46 grams of crack cocaine from a residence in the 800 block of South Amy Lane in Harker Heights.
Fisher was being held Monday in Bell County Jail pending transfer to the U.S. Marshal's Service. Additional charges are expected to be filed in U.S. District Court in Waco, Moseley said.
The total value of narcotics seized during the investigation exceeds $5,000. Officers also seized approximately $900 in cash at the time of the arrest and subsequent searches, said Moseley, noting the Bell County District Attorneys Office, the U.S. Marshal's Service and the U.S. Attorney's Office assisted in the investigation.
