An 8-month-old baby was found on Thursday morning during a drug raid on a Brownwood home.

About 7:45 a.m. on Thursday, the Brownwood Police Department and the Brown County Sheriff’s Office's SWAT Teams executed a search warrant and an arrest warrant on the 1700 block of Main Boulevard in Brownwood.

The SWAT Teams seized 13 grams of methamphetamine and 32 grams of high-quality marijuana.

Amy Beth Bailey, 49, was arrested on multiple charges, including manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone, endangering a child and possession of marijuana.

“This residence is known to law enforcement and has been a source of numerous neighborhood complaints regarding illegal activity and narcotics trafficking,” said Brownwood Police Chief Terry Nichols.

“Drug dealers do not recognize city or county boundaries,” said Brown County Sheriff Vance Hill. “What we did today is another example for the citizens of Brown County to see the Sheriff’s Office and Police Department working actively together to address the illegal drug distribution in our community.”

Brown County residents are encouraged to report suspicious activity and anyone who wishes to make anonymous tips can call the Heart of Texas Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
