Houston police officer Traci Tennarse, 29, was arrested at a local motel by HPD SWAT officers along with a 19-year-old woman and a 58-year-old man who was believed to be Tennarse’s boyfriend. Police arrested Tennarse after they say she delivered 50 pounds of marijuana to an informant in for $17,000.
Tennarse is assigned to HPD’s identification division. Anna Emmons, the Harris County Assistant District Attorney handling the case, said, “It would be a little bit smaller than the size of a bale of hay.” Emmons said, “Everything that I have knowledge of, we believe that she has done everything after she got off of the job.”
“It’s unbelievable that you have police officers out there working, wearing the blue, having the badge and breaking the citizens’ trust,” she said. Tennarse’s bond is set at $34,000 — that’s double the street value of the drugs she allegedly sold.
