When agents entered the home, they discovered a small amount of “ice,” a  rocklike form of methamphetamine, along with a small amount of marijuana.

Murphy was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance.  Grimes said Murphy had prior drug offenses and had charges pending.

While at the home agents also arrested Levi Britton Pitts, 18, of 60 Mike  Parra Road, and charged him with the statutory rape of a 15-year-old female,  Grimes said.
