Three Generations of Crack Sellers Under One Roof

Apparently family togetherness, when it comes to crime, is not limited to adult-diaper scamsters.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office announced this afternoon that they had busted a family of six for selling crack from their home on the northeast side of town.

Included: a grandfather, father, mother, daughter, son, son-in-law, and cousin. And one guy who's still on the loose.

The six were arrested at the home in the 12800 block of Magic Drive after neighbors complained that they were, you know, selling crack.

Arrested were:

Lugene Davis, Jr. (DOB 07/03/77) - Delivery of a Controlled Substance/ Engaging in Organized Crime

Lugene Davis, Sr. (DOB 04/08/52) - Delivery of a Controlled Substance/ Engaging in Organized Crime

Mary Davis (DOB 04/03/49) - Delivery of a Controlled Substance/ Engaging in Organized Crime

Sheila Ann Sowell (DOB 09/10/65) - Engaging in Organized Crime

Darryl Lynn Jones (DOB 03/04/64) - Engaging in Organized Crime

James Gibbs (DOB 06/29/45) - Possession of a Controlled Substance/ Engaging in Organized Crime

The arrests came after a five-month investigation, the HCSO says.
