Five arrested in raid at local residence

Five individuals were arrested on outstanding warrants on July 25 when a cadre of local law enforcement executed a search warrant at a Burnet County residence.

Burnet County Sheriff's deputies and investigators, Burnet police officers, the Texas Department of Public Safety Special Response Team (SRT) and the Texas Rangers all worked together to execute the search warant at 1544 Buchanan Drive, looking for illegal narcotics and narcotics paraphernalia as well as evidence of narcotics packaging, manufacturing or distribution and records or stolen property normally associated with illegal narcotics use and activity.

Arrested and transported to the Burnet County Jail on outstanding warrants were Brent Barnard Sr. of Burnet; Johnny Loehr of Burnet; Sean Clopton of Burnet; Keith Maynard of San Saba; and Shelley Adams (Vaughn) of San Saba.

Maynard was also being charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance less than a gram, which are state jail felonies, and Loehr was being charged with tampering or fabricating physical evidence with intent to impair, a third-degree felony, as a result of evidence found at the scene.

Officers recovered illegal narcotics believed to be methamphetamines as well as several firearms, one identified to be “illegal” by Texas statute.

According to the Burnet County Sheriff's Department, the residence where the search warrant was executed is under the care, custody and control of Louis Bostick of Burnet County, who was not among those arrested by deputies and was not being charged with a crime at this time.

The investigation into activity at the residence remains under investigation, according to the department.

“Any citizen with information regarding this case, or any other illegal activities in Burnet County, is urged to contact the Burnet County Sheriff’s Office or Burnet County Crime Stoppers,” read a press statement issued by the department Thursday. “Sheriff Calvin Boyd and the Burnet County Sheriff’s Office would like to take this opportunity to thank the Texas Rangers, Texas Department of Public Safety, Burnet Police Department and the 33rd District Attorney’s Office, for their assistance in this endeavor.”
