Farris faces meth charges
Smithville police arrested a 35-year-old local man and charged him with possession of Schedule II for resale and possession of drug paraphernalia after an investigation allegedly revealed meth and paraphernalia in his home on June 16. Eddy Deloyd Farris was taken into custody after police investigating a drug complaint on Jennings Lane reportedly found him hiding under a mattress inside the residence. Central Dispatch informed officers that Farris had active warrants, and a search of the area near where Farris was found led officers to recover a black camera case containing a baggie with a white, crystallized substance believed to be meth, weighing approximately 7 grams, a burnt glass straw with a copper filter, a set of scales, a burnt light bulb configured with a straw coming out of the end, a spoon with a white substance melted onto it, and a loaded syringe with a white substance inside.
