A smartphone app tip led to the arrest of two people Tuesday in a drug investigation in northwest Harris County, according to investigators

Maurice O. Jackson, 34, was charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana. He was arrested at a home in the 7900 block of Glenn Cliff, as was a driver seen leaving the home.

Harris County Sheriff's Office investigators say they got an anonymous tip from someone using the iWatchHarrisCounty smartphone app. They were then able to obtain a warrant to search the home. They say when they went to enter it, Jackson tried to drive away. He was stopped and arrested.

Investigators say inside Jackson's home was a pound of processed marijuana, 13 marijuana plants and 'grow lab' equipment.
