Update: Local, Federal Authorities Need Your Help In Search For Suspects

A federal drug bust last week resulted in 25 of 30 suspects named in a sealed indictment handed down by a Wichita County Grand Jury.  Some of those arrested last week include: 39 year-old Melanie Lynn Brown, 20 year-old McKayla Renee Fondren, 38 year-old Nancy Arlene Freeman, 35 year-old Brandi Kay Jennings, and 36 year-old Jesse Carl Langford, Jr., 59 year-old Debra Gail McCullough, 44 year-old Dewey Wayne Wells, 35 year-old Troy Don Radford, 39 year-old Tommy James Vasquez and 24 year-old Andrew Spears.

The arrests come as a result of a two-year long investigation that started in October of 2010.    At a press conference, interim Wichita Falls Police Chief Manuel Borrego told reporters, “The federal indictment accuses these individuals of at least one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.  Others are being charged with substantial drug sales and also firearms offenses.”  The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, Wichita Falls Police Department, Arlington Police Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, U.S. Secret Service and U.S. Marshals all took part in the investigation.

Two of the four suspects still on the run (pictured above) have been taken into custody.  Travis Ritchie and Patrick Michael Herrian are now in the Wichita County Jail.  Ezzell and Calandreli remain on the run.

Randell Wayne Ezzell     DOB 12-29-1966 6’00” / 265 .lbs brown hair / blue eyes

David Daniel Calandreli  DOB 03-29-1986 5’11” / 175 .lbs black hair / brown eyes

If you should see these individuals, please call Crime Stoppers at 940-322-9888 or

1-800-322-9888 immediately.
