Teen Girl Who Was Hit With Major Drug Trafficking Charges Let Off; Guess Who Her Dad Is
A woman arrested on drug possession and trafficking charges may be the daughter of a Drug Enforcement Agency office.
Texas authorities arrested 19-year-old Sarah Furay after they found marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and ecstasy in her apartment, KCEN-TV reports.
The probable cause statement for the incident said officers found 31.5 grams of packaged cocaine, 29 tablets of ecstasy, 126 grams of marijuana, 60 doses of a drug related to LSD and an unverified amount of methamphetamine.
Two digital scales, packaging material and a handwritten drug price list was also found in her bedroom.
She was taken to Brazos County Jail on three counts of manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance and one count of possession.
Her bail was set $39,000, but she was released after having spent one day in custody.
Death and Taxes reports Furay to be the daughter of DEA agent Bill Furay, who has been with the agency since 2008.
Bill oversaw DEA operations to crack down on drug trafficking organizations in Texas.
The Houston Chronicle reported in 2010 Bill celebrated the success of an DEA operation, coded-named Agent Orange, which arrested 60 people reportedly associated with Mexico’s Sinaloa narcotics cartel.
In 2009, Bill boasted of the results of a two-year undercover joint investigation that dismantled a major drug trafficking organization in the Lake Jackson-Freeport area, according to ABC.
Bill is currently serving as the DEA’s diplomatic representative at the U.S. ambassador’s office in Panama City, Panama
Penalties for trafficking Schedule 1 and 2 drugs such as cocaine, LSD, methamphetamine and marijuana can carry decades of prison time, according to the DEA’s website.
