BEAUMONT, TX (News Release) -

NACOGDOCHES, TX (Press release) - During the early morning hours of August 11, 2010 Sheriff's deputies arrested James Cory Beaver, 31 years of age, of Coldspring, Tx. and Ashlie Nichole Lichtenwalner, 24 years of age, of Cleveland, Tx. for a second degree felony offense of Possession of  a Controlled Substance.

The arrests came after deputies stopped a 1999 Dodge vehicle the couple occupied for a traffic violation along U.S. 59 near FM 1638.  Upon making contact with Beaver and Lichtenwalner, deputies observed that both individuals appeared nervous and were deceptive when questioned about their travel plans.  Beaver, who was the driver of the vehicle, gave deputies permission to search the vehicle.  During the search deputies discovered almost 60 grams of methamphetamine hidden inside the dash of the vehicle, at which time the two were taken into custody for the 2nd degree felony.   Following the arrest, Sheriff's deputies were able to establish ties to the Aryan Brotherhood White Supremacist  Gang.

Nearly 60 grams of methamphetamine was a substantial amount of illicit drugs for those two individuals to have had in their possession.   We are glad to have taken that amount of harmful drugs off our streets.   Our officers did a great job of alerting to the fact that something more than a traffic ticket was involved during this stop and I commend them for their actions.

Both subjects currently remain incarcerated in the Nacogdoches County Jail.
