GALVESTON — The Galveston County District Attorney’s Office has dismissed about 30 drug cases after the Texas Department of Public Safety detected errors by a former analyst at a Houston crime lab.

Galveston County Criminal District Attorney Jack Roady said there were concerns about the way the analyst handled evidence. 

“I think we had over a thousand that resulted in a charge,” Roady said. 

“We’re looking at the facts involved, seeing if the evidence submitted for testing is of sufficient integrity that it could be retested.”
