LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Angelina County Sheriff's Office, while serving a search warrant at a home on Old Grimes Cemetery Road, arrested two men and confiscated a suspected meth lab. Deputies are also investigating a suspicious death at the home.

This was the second time in three months deputies had served a warrant at the home.

According to Sgt. Allen Hill, the warrant was served around 10 a.m. Thursday.

According to Investigator Mark McLin, the sheriff's office is investigating a suspicious death at the home Sunday morning. McLin said emergency personnel responded to a non-responsive call, where Douglas Hickman, 27, was pronounced dead.

McLin said witness statements indicate Hickman was stopped in a traffic stop and may have ingested meth to hide the evidence.

"We're investigating it as suspicious death due his age and narcotic use," McLin said.

Hill said deputies served the warrant at the home, but nobody was there. They then went to a neighboring home and arrested two people and found the lab in a back shed.

Authorities say they'll continue to watch this area, until drugs stop pouring from this street.

"It's just one big circle," McLin said. "They all know each other and it's a hard habit to kick. It's sad that we're losing people to it, especially at these ages."

Jacob McKinley Dominey, 26, of Lufkin, will be charged with possession of a controlled substance, Hill said.

Aaron Scott Dewberry, 36, was also arrested and charged with bond forfeiture, for violating terms of his bond conditions from the April arrest. He was arrested at a neighbor's house.

Dewberry was previously arrested during the April raid on a charge of possession of certain chemicals with intent to manufacture.
