Galveston police says they've made an arrest in their ongoing battle against methamphetamines in the Island City.

On Thursday members of the Galveston Police Department Vice and Narcotics Division executed a search and arrest warrant at 5015 Crocket Boulevard. Detectives seized nearly 12 grams of methamphetamines, narcotics sales paraphernalia, and a pistol.

Eric Mills was arrested and charged with manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, penalty group 1, greater than or equal to 4 grams, but less than 200 grams. Mills has a bond assessed at $30,000.

Chief Porretto said, "This case is but one example of the increasing methamphetamine use on the island. Our department will continue to work with UTMB Police to combat this growing issue through our investigative partnership. All officers are to be commended on a job well done."
