A narcotics search warrant at a local home netted four arrests in what police are calling an ongoing heroin investigation in the Friendswood area.

Robert Griego Jimenez, 24, 19-year-old Tia Amelia Stone and 23-year-old Layton Jamal Coulter -- all of Houston -- were each charged with possession of a controlled substance. Coulter was also charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. Seamus Bernard Lamb, 22, of Heritage Park, was charged with possession of marijuana.

These arrests follow the arrest of Isaac Christopher Dominguez, 25, of League City on Wednesday. Dominguez was charged with delivery of a controlled substance after a traffic stop in the 3300 block of F.M. 528 where officers allegedly found him in possession of 7 grams of heroin.

After Dominguez's arrest, officers obtained a warrant to search Jimenez's home in the 11000 block of Sageview Drive in the Sagemont subdivision of Houston.

According to officials, Friendswood police entered the home around 6:45pm Thursday and found two vials of liquid heroin, marijuana and two boxes of narcotic paraphernalia and syringes. They also found a semi-automatic pistol and ammunition.

Investigators knew Coulter was living with Jimenez and that he had an active parole revocation warrant. Coulter is a convicted felon.

This is the second narcotic search warrant executed at Jimenez' home in as many years. In January 2010, officers arrested Jimenez after they found black tar heroin, liquid heroin, LSD, codeine, marijuana, hashish and a large variety of illegal prescription pills.

Jimenez pleaded guilty and received 42 months of community supervision. His probation for this offense does not expire until September 2013, police said. In March 2011, Jimenez was charged with a misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and received 10 days in Harris County Jail. Jimenez is now back in jail, being held on a $2,000 bond.

Coulter's prior arrests include a 2008 arrest for possession of more than 17 grams of heroin with intent to distribute and a 2009 arrest for possession of 4 grams of heroin with intent to distribute. Coulter was placed on three years of community supervision. His probation was set to expire March 2012, but he was sentenced in December 2010 to two years in prison for violating the terms of his probation. He served from February 2011 to March 2011 when he was released on parole until April 2012. Coulter is in Harris County Jail. He has two $5,000 bonds for the current charges, but no bond is set for the revocation of parole warrant.

Stone was arrested for possession of heroin in March 2011. She received two years of felony probation that will expire in May 2013. Stone is in Harris County Jail and has not had a bond set.

Dominguez remains in the Harris County Jail on a $20,000 bond. His last arrest was for evading arrest after he led officers in a vehicle pursuit in October 2011.
