Deputies from Lancaster Station's LANCAP team searched a home in the 3200 block of W Ave L-8 early Wednesday morning.

The home, which is located directly across the Street from an Elementary School, had been the source of several complaints regarding drug sales in the area.

When the deputies entered the home, they found Methamphetamine, Tar Heroin and several bottles of assorted prescription drugs. The deputies also discovered that the home was being protected by a sophisticated surveillance system consisting of several security cameras that were mounted to the outside of the house. The cameras were all linked to several laptop computers that were found in different rooms inside the home.

The deputies arrested 70 year old Katherine Hales and her son 43 year old Daniel Hales who both live in the home. They also arrested a 17 year old girl who they found inside the home.

Katherine Hales is facing several narcotics related charges including maintaining a home for drug use. Her bail has been set at $30,000.

Daniel Hales is also facing narcotics charges including selling drugs in a School zone. His bail has also been set at $30,000.

The underage female was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance. She was released to the custody of her parent.
