Man Arrested In Connection to Smurfing Case Heads to Trial

A man arrested in a major bust in the fight against meth has now been indicted by a Wichita County grand jury.

Zachariah Polk, 37, was the 12th person to be arrested in a multi year investigation.

Authorities searched through pharmaceutical logs and found the suspects were buying large amounts of pseudoephedrine and using it to make and sell meth. Officials say at least 19 people are associated with this bust, but there could be more.

Polk is charged with possession of certain chemicals with intent to manufacture a controlled substance.

According to an arrest affidavit, Polk purchased 54 boxes of pseudoephedrine tablets between August 8, 2009 and January 9, 2010. Purchases were made at 10 separate locations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Twenty-six boxes were purchased at pharmacies in the Wichita Falls area.

Polk has been indicted on one count of possession/transport chemicals with the intent to manufacture.
