Blinn College student Sarah Furay looks like any other 19-year-old honor roll student. You would never know that hidden in her apartment she had 31.5 grams of cocaine, over four ounces of marijuana, 29 Ecstasy tablets and 60 doses of a substance similar to LSD. Not to mention she is the daughter of a DEA special agent.
Furay’s father has worked for the DA for more than 20 years. He was the supervisory special agent in the Houston division before a recent transfer to Panama, becoming the DEA’s diplomatic attaché at the U.S. Ambassador’s office in Panama City.
According to College Station police, the search warrant was issued for the 19-year-old’s apartment because the authorities had information that she had been dealing drugs.
When searching the apartment Furay admitted that there was cocaine and marijuana in her room. Along with the drugs that where seized, the officers found a digital scale, baggies and a hand written list of drug prices.
College Station police are in charge of the investigation.
Her mug shot quickly went viral because she was smiling while getting booked, Furay earned the nickname “adorable drug kingpin”
Her charges however, are anything but adorable.
Due to how much Marijuana was found in her possession, Furay was charged with a state jail felony that she can be sentenced for u to 2 years in jail and $10,000 in fines.
That isn’t the end of if though.
She also faces two first-degree felony charges and one second-degree charge for manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance.
If she gets convicted, it could mean a 215-year sentence in prison and $30,000 in fines.
Her father had a presence at DEA press conferences where he often announced taking down drug dealers in similar situations as his daughter was caught in.
“You don’t see many drug traffickers retire,” he said after the arrest of a wealthy couple “either they end up in prison, or they end up dead.”
Furay was has been released on a $39,000 bail, the judge did not consider her a flight risk because of her father’s connections and with her mother being predominant figure in the education community.
“Having a mom and dad with well-established positions within departments of law enforcement and education certainly doesn’t hurt when it comes to getting your drug-dealing ass out of jail,” commented Death and Taxes in one of its news articles.
Houston has a reputation of being a enter for the distribution of drugs.
