Man charged in morphine case

December 5, 2012

The sale of morphine to undercover Hood County Sheriff’s Office deputies resulted in the arrest Friday of a 57-year-old Hood County man, according to Lieutenant Johnny Rose.

Charles Alving Youngblood, of the 3700 block of Canyon Road, was arrested by deputies at his residence at about 7:30 p.m. on a warrant for manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 1, more than 1 gram/less than 4 grams (second-degree felony, $35,000 bond), Rose stated.

“The charged stems from Youngblood selling approximately 2 grams of morphine to undercover officers during a drug investigation that occurred in Hood County,” Rose said.

“During Youngblood’s arrest a .22-caliber revolver was located by deputies.”

Rose noted that because Youngblood already had a felony conviction, possession of the firearm was a third-degree felony. His bond was set at $15,000.


A Hood County man who failed to pull over his vehicle when a Sheriff’s Office deputy tried to stop him for investigation of driving while intoxicated is facing a third-degree felony after a brief pursuit, Rose said.

A call reporting a possible drunken driver on Lipan Highway, northwest of Granbury, came to 911 at about 9:45 p.m. on Nov. 27. The vehicle was spotted by the deputy in the 1700 block of Highway 377, Rose said, and stopped on Old Granbury road after reaching speeds up to 70 mph.

James David Beddingfield, 50, of the 900 block of Janis Street in the Hideaway Bay Estates subdivision, was charged with evading arrest with a motor vehicle ($10,000 bond), plus DWI (Class A misdemeanor, $2,500 bond). He was released from the Hood County Jail after posting bond, Rose said.
