The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office said four people were arrested on drug charges in Sadler last Friday after officers executed a search warrant at a home and seized large quantities of marijuana and prescription pills.


In an emailed press release, the department said the GCSO Special Response Team and the Grayson County Narcotics Unit carried out the search at a home in the 300 block of South Main Street at approximately 6 a.m. and arrested Wesley Hernandez, Amanda Basset, Dana Atchley and Michael Atchley. Officers recovered nearly 260 grams of Xanax, five pounds of marijuana and a firearm reported stolen out of the DFW Metroplex.


“The street value of the narcotics is estimated to be over $20,000,” the release stated.


All four suspects were charged with varying forms of possession of a controlled substance in a drug free zone and the sheriff’s office statement said all remained in custody at the county jail Monday afternoon. Bond was set at $10,000 for both Dana Atchley and Michael Atchley. Hernandez and Bassett were also charged for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. Hernandez’s bond was set at $70,000, but Bassett’s bond was revoked due to a parole violation.


No other details were provided in the release. A representative of the sheriff’s office was not immediately available for comment Monday.
