Search warrant reveals what police found in deadly Pecan Park drug bust
Houston

The deadly drug bust in Pecan Park last month that left two people dead and five officers injured netted only 18 grams of marijuana and 1.5 grams of white powder, according to the results of a search warrant released Friday.

One day after a narcotics officer was relieved of duty pending an internal investigation, officials remained tight-lipped about the botched raid, which was one of the most violent in the history of the Houston Police Department.

"We're not going to piecemeal the discussion," Police Chief Art Acevedo said Friday, after a promotion ceremony at the training academy in north Houston. "When we are done with our investigation, we will have uncovered every stone to get to the truth."
