Meth arrests lead to indictments against trio

By CHRISTIN COYNE

A Parker County grand jury this month indicted three people accused of selling methamphetamine in Parker County.

Alan Ray Hill, 40, of Springtown, Darrell Ray Lamance, 47, of Boyd, and Tracy Lea Nobles, 47, of Lake Worth, were indicted on first-degree felony charges of engaging in organized criminal activity.

Hill was also indicted on a second-degree felony charge of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, more than a gram, less than 4 grams.

During 2012, Hill sold methamphetamine to Lamance, who sold methamphetamine to Nobles and others, according to the Weatherford-Parker County Special Crimes Unit.

Investigators reportedly found about 20 grams of methamphetamine, nearly $5,000, several firearms and drug paraphernalia when they executed a search warrant at Lamance’s Fort Worth residence on Aug. 10.

Lamance reportedly admitted to purchasing about a quarter ounce of methamphetamine every two weeks and selling it for $80 a gram, according to SCU.

Hill and Nobles were released from the Parker County Jail on bond and Lamance remained in the Parker County Jail as of Tuesday evening.

Sexual assaults

A 22-year-old Weatherford man accused of sexually abusing two girls in June was indicted by a Parker County grand jury.

Robert Soriano Jr. was indicted on second degree felony charges sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child by sexual contact regarding one reported victim and two counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact regarding another victim.

Some of the incidents occurred at a Weatherford middle school and after church events, according to court documents.

Soriano admitted to having sex with one girl and molesting another while knowing their ages, police said.

Soriano remains in the Parker County Jail with bond set at $50,000, according to jail records.

Others indicted Sept. 12 include:

• Cirilo Anthony Cisneros, assault of a family member with a previous conviction.
