Huge Drug Bust In Wichita Falls

The streets in Wichita Falls are safer after a huge drug bust. 

The Wichita Falls Organized Crime Unit, SWAT, and K-9 Unit executed a search warrant in the 4700 block of Eden Lane on Monday afternoon.  They seized nearly $18,000 in drugs. This included almost six ounces of crack cocaine and more than four ounces or marijuana.  They also found baggies, scales, and $1,100.  


“This is a lot of drugs and this guy is a person who is distributing drugs in our community,” said Sergeant John Spragins, Wichita Falls Police. “A major player, it’s a good score for our narcotics unit.”

Allen Dennis is behind bars at the Wichita County Jail.  He is charged with Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 Cocaine over four grams and Possession of Marijuana over four ounces.  His bond has been set at just over $60,000.


A single user amount of cocaine is about .2 grams, worth about $20, according to Spragins. Dennis was in possession of more than 850 times that amount.

 “Obviously it's a big bust, a great investigation on behalf of the organized crime unit, and that's something that we're proud of,” said Spragins.

The narcotics will be sent to a lab for testing.  Then the case will be turned over to the district attorney’s office for prosecution.
