On Wednesday, September 27, 2023, at approximately 8:00 AM, members of the Austin County Regional Special Response Team (SRT) executed a search and arrest warrant at Park Place Apartments, located at 20 South Mechanic Street, Bellville, Texas 77418. This operation was the result of an ongoing narcotics investigation conducted by the Westside High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Narcotics Task Force.

Two suspects, identified as Devan Langley (36) and Robert Green (41), were apprehended during the operation. They were arrested on active warrants for the charge of Manufacture and Delivery of a Controlled Substance PG 1. A subsequent search of the suspects’ apartment led to the seizure of various narcotics, including methamphetamine, MDMA, and Xanax, along with a significant amount of United States currency. Additionally, a semi-automatic handgun was discovered inside the apartment, which was later confirmed as stolen.

The Westside Narcotics Task Force comprises investigators from multiple law enforcement agencies, including the Austin County Sheriff’s Office, Bellville Police Department, Sealy Police Department, Hempstead Police Department, Waller County Sheriff’s Office, Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The Austin County District Attorney’s Office provided valuable assistance in the investigation.

The investigation remains ongoing, and further developments are expected as law enforcement officials continue to gather information and pursue leads.

The successful execution of this operation was made possible with the support of the Bellville Police Department, Waller County Sheriff’s Office K9 Division, and Washington County Tactical Medics, who played crucial roles in ensuring the operation’s success and the safety of those involved.

This operation reflects the collaborative efforts of law enforcement agencies committed to addressing drug-related crime in the region. As the investigation progresses, the community can anticipate increased security and a reduction in narcotics-related activities in Bellville, Texas, and the surrounding areas.
