Woman facing two felony drug counts

November 7, 2012

A Fort Worth woman was arrested last Wednesday during a traffic stop after two different illegal drugs were found, according to Hood County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose.

Andrea Elizabeth Erb, 39, was the driver of a vehicle pulled over by deputies in the 6000 block of Highway 377 East, Rose noted. Both methamphetamine and ecstasy were located, the lieutenant said.

“During the stop 2.8 grams of meth and 3.6 grams of ecstasy was discovered,” Rose said.

Erb was charged with a pair of third-degree felony drug counts, Rose stated – possession of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 1, more than 1 gram/under 4 grams, along with possession of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 2, over 1 gram/under 4 grams.

The bonds set on Erb’s two counts totaled $20,000, Rose said.


Deputies who responded to a welfare call at about 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 in the 8900 block of Mitchell Bend Court in southern Hood County found a 43-year-old woman asleep on the side of the road, Rose said.

A 911 call requesting the welfare check had indicated that there was a person lying in a ditch, and three dogs were on top of the individual, Rose noted.

Rose said that the dogs could not be found by deputies arriving on the scene, but the woman was “reeking of alcohol” and was arrested. She was charged with public intoxication, a Class C misdemeanor.


A 24-year-old man driving at around midnight on Oct. 20 in the 2800 block of Old Granbury Road and an 18-year-old female passenger were arrested and charged with a Class B misdemeanor after under 2 ounces of marijuana was found in their possession, Rose said.

The two posted $2,000 bond each and were released from the Hood County Jail.
