      The Dawson Narcotic Unit is at it again, for the second time in a one week's span, they've executed a search warrant which resulted in drug related charges.

      After a two week investigation, in which officers made several controlled drug buys, a search warrant was served in 200 block of Third Avenue around 4:30 pm Tuesday.

      Officers say when they arrived at the house 31-year-old Derrick Mathis attempted to run but was quickly apprehended with marijuana and crack cocaine in his possession.

      Mathis faces multiple charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of cocaine, possession of a drug object, and possession of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school.

      He is currently being held in Terrell County Jail.
