LAKE WORTH, Texas — Lake Worth Police discovered more than $2 million worth of drugs and paraphernalia in a home, making it the largest bust in the department’s history, officials said Monday.
After several complaints from a homeowner, an undercover investigation called “Operation Safe Neighborhood” has begun, the Lake Worth Police Department said.
On Friday, May 20, Lake Worth police and detectives served a warrant for the arrest of Jon “Spanky” Curb at a home in the 6600 block of Lakeside Drive.
Inside the house, officers and detectives spotted a pill press and numerous drug paraphernalia for all to see. After the discovery, detectives obtained a search warrant for the house.
During the search, they located and seized several types of drug paraphernalia, including bath salts, cocaine, firearms, fentanyl and methamphetamine.
Police said the drugs seized are estimated at $2,285,250 in street value, 72 times more than the average transaction.
Police also noted that the volume of drugs seized “represents approximately 11,721 lethal doses”.
Here is the full list published by Lake Worth PD:
- 11 firearms of various styles and calibers, one of which was stolen
- 2 homemade suppressors (silent)
- 1 pill box
- 3,390 grams of suspected amphetamine (Adderall, powder, rock, and homemade pills)
- 18.6 grams of suspected fentanyl powder
- 17 grams of suspect DMT (N,N-Dimethyltryptamine)
- 54 grams of suspect bath salts (synthetic cathinone)
- 24 grams of suspected cocaine
- 186 grams of suspected promethazine syrup
- 20 grams of suspected homemade alprazolam (Xanax) pills
- 42 grams of suspected methamphetamine
Police say Curb has been charged with two counts of manufacturing/delivering a controlled substance and is currently being held in Tarrant County Jail. Police said other charges against Curb are pending further lab testing.
Curb’s girlfriend told the WFAA off-camera that he’ll likely be home this week or next. Residents of the Curb neighborhood reported seeing constant traffic entering and leaving the Curb home 24 hours a day for the past two or more years.
Lake Worth PD told the WFAA that officers did not find large sums of cash in the home, so the department believes the raid happened right after one of the deposits and exchanges. Curb’s money for home-located drugs.
Police said Curb’s home was under tight security, with surveillance cameras covering the entire exterior of his property, the front door and the driveway.
Officials said the case is currently being reviewed for adoption by the federal government with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF).
