Sarah Furay, a Texas teenager who is facing upwards of 215 years in prison for charges related to the sale of cocaine, ecstasy and amphetamine, among other narcotics, is the daughter of a supervisory special agent with the Drug Enforcement Agency’s office in Houston, the DEA said this week.

Ms. Furay, 19, was arrested last month and charged with three counts of manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance and one count of drug possession — all felonies.

On Tuesday, the DEA confirmed to KAGS HD News that Ms. Furay is the daughter of a special agent who has spent more than 20 years on the force.

“[T]he DEA confirmed that Sarah Furay, the daughter of DEA Special Agent Bill Furay, was arrested in College Station, TX on charges related to drug trafficking. The College Station Police Department is handling all investigative matters related to the charges. The Furay family is dealing with this private matter as best they can,” the statement read.

Mr. Furay declined to comment for the station’s report.

The teen was arrested by police in College Station, 90 miles northwest of Houston, after authorities arrived at her apartment armed with a search warrant and recovered more than 31 grams of packaged cocaine, 126 grams of marijuana, 29 “ecstasy” pills, methamphetamine and dozens of doses of a drug similar to LSD, a police report alleged, along with digital scales, packaging material and a handwritten list of drug prices.

“You don’t see many drug traffickers retire. Either they end up in prison, or they end up dead,” Mr. Furay told the Pearland Journal five years earlier.

His daughter was released last month from police custody after posting $39,000 bond, but could face as many as 215 years behind bars if and when she’s convicted and sentenced on the four felony counts.
