Thousands of Illegal Pills Seized From Houston-Area Home

A drug raid on a Houston-area home has led to one arrest and thousands of illegal pills confiscated from inside a house coated with powder residue.

Federal agents on Wednesday searched the northwest Harris County residence, detained one man and seized pill-pressing devices and chemicals used to make Ecstasy.

Authorities didn't immediately release further details on the suspect pending an initial court appearance.

Department of Homeland Security spokesman Greg Palmore says powdery residue was on the walls, in the ventilation system and coated televisions and other electronics.

Palmore says agents had a search warrant for the home to check possible drug-related activity when they found  thousands of pills. Palmore says investigators believe the suspect was a mass producer of illegal substances.
