March 2, 2013

A couple of accused drug dealers were arrested recently after investigative work turned in by the Hood County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit, Lieutenant Johnny Rose said.

WARRANT ARREST

A 23-year-old Hood County man turned himself in at the Sheriff’s Office at about 10:30 a.m. on Monday on a second-degree felony warrant that had been issued involving the sale of ecstasy, according to Rose.

Patrick Bruce Portman, of the 1200 block of Pawnee Trail in the Indian Harbor subdivision, is facing a count of manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 2, more than 1 gram/less than 4 grams, Hood County Jail booking records show.

Rose stated that Portman sold “approximately 2 grams of ecstasy to undercover officers around August 2012 during a drug investigation.”

Portman posted a $10,000 bond and was released on Tuesday.

METH COUNT

A 49-year-old Hood County man is accused of selling meth and was arrested by the Narcotics Unit at about 1 p.m. on Feb. 22 in the 2600 block of Highway 377 East, Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose said.

Jamie Lee Saddlemire, of the 3600 block of Big Timber Lane in the Timber Cove subdivision east of Granbury, is facing a second-degree felony count of manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), Penalty Group 1, more than 1 gram/less than 4 grams, Rose stated.

“The charge stems from Saddlemire selling approximately 1.6 grams of meth to undercover officers around August 2012 during a drug investigation,” Rose said.

Saddlemire was released from the Hood County Jail the next day, after posting $7,500 bond.
