Acting on a tip, county law enforcement officers busted a local man for the manufacture and possession of illegal substances.

On May 3, the Henderson County Drug Enforcement Unit received information that Alexander Harmon, also known as Alexander Woods, was in possession of a large quantity of crack cocaine and marijuana at his residence in the Moore Station community.

Investigator Botie Hillhouse prepared and presented an affidavit to Justice of Peace Pct. 1 Henry Ashford.

Judge Ashford issued a narcotics search warrant for the residence located at 6063 Farm-to-Market Road 315 in LaRue.

The HCDEU, assisted by the Henderson County Tactical Team and Coffee City Police Department, executed the search warrant at approximately 5 p.m. May 3.

Rhonda Harmon was alone at the residence when officers arrived. While officers searched the residence Alexander Harmon, 39, arrived at the residence and was arrested.

Harmon was charged with manufacture/delivery of controlled substance more than 4 grams but less than 200 grams and possession of marijuana, more than 4 ounces, but less than 5 pounds. Harmon was released Friday after posting bonds totaling $120,000 which were set by Judge Ashford.
