Kaufman Texas – On Wednesday January 12, 2011 during a combined undercover effort between Kaufman County investigators and Kaufman Police Department three suspects were arrested and charged with Manufacture / Delivery of controlled substance penalty group 3 / 4 < 28G, which is a State Jail Felony.
Arrested were Monty Lee Mixon, 43, of Dallas, Brenda Vrla, 53, of Dallas, and Mark Wayne Newman, 43, also of Dallas.
