LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man headed back to jail just three months after his scheduled release from prison after he was arrested for three criminal charges, according to Lufkin Police.

A police officer questioned Broderick Tremaney Busby, 32, Thursday evening after an apartment complex on the 900 block of South Second Street reported he was at their address after he was told not to enter the property. The officer asked for his name, and Busby did not at first give the correct identity, Det. J.B. Smith said.

Smith said the officer knew who Busby was and after further questioning he admitted who he was. Smith said the officer smelled PCP in the vehicle and after a search found suspected PCP, marijuana and four pills believed to be ecstasy.

Busby is charged with the misdemeanor offenses of criminal trespass and failure to identify and the felony offense of possession of a controlled substance.

According to public data records, Busby was scheduled to be released from state prison this past April on a 2002 conviction of criminal trespass. Busby also has previous convictions for failure to identify and evading arrest.

As of Friday afternoon, Busby was still in the Angelina County Jail, with a total bond set at $11,000.
