Parker and Adcock were arrested on Nov. 9 when Austin police executed a search warrant at their home.

Police discovered meth pipes, a digital scale, marijuana pipes and a small amount of marijuana in plain sight in their bedroom. Also found was 0.9 grams of meth in a desk drawer in the bedroom.

Two capsules containing traces of white powder that tested positive for meth were discovered during the search – one in Parker’s pocket and one in a plastic container in the bedroom.

Police also seized $154 in cash, four pills of Vyvanse (Lisdexamfetamine), six pills containing hydrocodone, 45 Clonazepam and 13 Alprazalam.

Two juveniles live with Parker and Adcock and have bedrooms on the same level of the home. Court documents report that the juveniles were going to be picked up by a family member after school the day of the arrests.

Parker and Adcock will appear in court for pre-trial on March 17.
