LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – The first of three suspects arrested in an Angelina County Meth bust in June is going to prison after a plea deal with prosecutors.

Jodi Sparkman pled guilty to possession of a controlled substance, Methamphetamines, in exchange for a 10 year prison sentence.

Sparkman was arrested a little over six weeks ago along with Julie Allen and Gilmore Cox when sheriff's deputies went to the house to serve an outstanding warrant. They made a Meth bust instead.

Investigators confiscated 15 grams of Meth, and several needles and pipes.

Sergeant Allen Hill at the time of the arrests said he knew there was a chance drugs would be in the home, so he brought help. He said they found three people inside the house on J-H-B Circle, off U-S 59 north, getting high on Meth.

"I think the public seeing us make arrests assures them that they're complaints aren't falling on deaf ears. We take every tip to heart," Hill said.
