Mother, daughter arrested in drug bust
For a Selma mother and daughter, their Thanksgiving preparations were thrown off as they were confronted by the Selma Police Department Wednesday afternoon.
According to Selma Chief of Police William T. Riley, two of the department’s units conducted a search warrant at a home on Royal Street at around 1:30 p.m. During the search, detectives discovered thousands of dollars in cash, a weapon and drugs.
“In the search, detectives recovered $22,150 in cash, 22 grams of marijuana and a .40 caliber handgun,” Riley said. “Two individuals — a mother and her daughter — were taken into custody.”
Kimberly R. Brown, 42 and Amber Brown, 18, were the two individuals arrested.
Kimberly was charged with first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana, person forbidden to possess pistol and possession of drug paraphernalia. Amber was charged with second-degree possession of marijuana.
Kimberly has a criminal record, which includes a previous drug conviction, which led to the most recent charge of person forbidden to possess pistol.
According to the Dallas County Jail, Kimberly was placed under a $250,000 bond and has since made bond. Amber received a $500 bond and has also made bond.
Riley said despite the arrests the department is continuing the investigation.
