Cooke County deputies arrested Workman and Solesbee on Jan. 24, 2005, during a bust in Oak Ridge. During the raid at Workman’s house on Parkside Circle, officers seized 851 grams of liquid methamphetamine.

Officers responded to the residence after receiving a tip from a woman visiting the house. She sent a text message to a deputy complaining about a strong chemical odor in the mobile home.

In early March, a Cooke County grand jury returned an indictment against Workman alledging that he manufactured or possessed methamphetamine in the amount of 400 grams or more. His bond was set at $50,000.

A true bill or indictment is not a conviction, but that the grand jury members think there is enough evidence for the state to proceed with a case against the defendant.

• Misty Michelle Escobedo, manufacture of controlled substance- methamphetamine, first-degree felony, $50,000 bond.
