Two women, one from Hood County and one from Weatherford, were arrested shortly after 2 p.m. on Jan. 26 on separate felony drug charges after Granbury Police officers responded to a call about a theft, Deputy Chief Alan Hines said.

Peggy Sue Owen, 45, of the 1700 block of Atasta Drive in the Indian Harbor subdivision south of Granbury, was behind the wheel of the vehicle, found in the 1000 block of South Morgan Street, Hines said. The passenger in the vehicle was Holly Renee Moon, 27, of Weatherford.

Hines said that both Moon and Owen were “found to be in possession of a crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine.”

Moon was charged with a third-degree felony count of possession of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 1, more than 1 gram/less than 4 grams.

Owen is facing a state jail felony count, possession of under 1 gram of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 1.

Moon’s bond was set at $10,000, and she remained in custody as of press time. Owen was released on Jan. 27 after posting $7,500 bond.
