A Texarkana man accused of trafficking crack cocaine is named in a four-count indictment handed down last week by a federal grand jury.
Aundra Deon "Dre" Holmes, 38, allegedly sold crack and powder cocaine to an undercover operative on four dates in July and August, according to an indictment handed down Sept. 13 and unsealed this week in the Texarkana Division of the Western District of Arkansas. According to a search warrant affidavit, officials allegedly recorded Holmes selling sizable quantities of the drugs from a trailer home in the 3400 block of Creek Bend Lane in Texarkana, Ark., on multiple dates.
Holmes allegedly sold approximately one ounce of crack cocaine to someone working undercover July 24. Holmes allegedly sold .75 ounces of crack cocaine July 28 and one half ounce of crack and three grams of powder cocaine Aug. 10. The final count of Holmes' indictment alleges he sold .75 ounces of crack cocaine Aug. 15.
Members of law enforcement executed a search warrant Aug. 21 which was authorized by U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Bryant. A complaint filed in Miller County circuit court by Deputy Prosecuting Attorney David Cotton seeks Holmes' forfeiture of $1,392 seized Aug. 21.
In June, a petition was filed to revoke a 10-year term of probation Holmes was assessed for drug offenses in 2011. The revocation petition refers to a May 6 arrest of Holmes in Miller County for an alleged drug offense. The probation revocation and charges relating to Holmes' arrest in May remain pending in Miller County.
Holmes is currently receiving disability benefits, according to the petition to revoke his probation in Miller County. Holmes is scheduled to appear in court on the state charges in October.
At a hearing Tuesday before Bryant in Texarkana's downtown federal building, Holmes pleaded not guilty with the help of a federal public defender. He remains in the custody of U.S. Marshals.
