Police seize 21 grams of meth in local drug bust

AMARILLO - The Amarillo Police Department are investigating a seizure of 21 grams of meth over the weekend.

On Friday, the Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving (COPPS) department of the Amarillo Police Department searched the apartment of Brandon Michael Goldsmith, 27, and located the drugs. APD was responding on behalf of a tip given by another resident of the apartment complex on the 4600 block of S. Virginia. 

Officers observed Goldsmith taking items out of a vehicle that appeared to be freshly spray-painted and loading them into a backpack. Goldsmith consented to a search of his apartment. 

The Amarillo Police Department says Goldsmith was also wanted on a bond surrender warrant for an Unlawful Carry of a Weapon charge. He was in possession of a stolen debit card, the spray-painted car is of the same make and model of a car reported stolen in late July. 

Goldsmith was also in possession of methamphetamine. He was booked into the Randall County Jail and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, Bond Surrender, and a municipal warrant.

Officers then searched the apartment that was the subject of the original tip and found 21 grams of methamphetamine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

No one from the apartment was arrested but the investigation is on-going.
