ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Angelina County deputies had a hand in three drug arrests Tuesday.

According to Sgt. Allen Hill, they made the first around 5 p.m. after putting out a search for Travis Wayne Roberts, 32. Deputies conducted a search at his home in the Zavalla area around 3 p.m. and found enough components of a methamphetamine lab to arrest him for possession of certain chemicals with intent to manufacture. Hill said Roberts was not home at the time of the search, so they put a bulletin out on him and authorities tracked him down in Huntington.

Later that night, around 9 p.m., Hill said he got a call from Hudson Police who smelled a meth lab in a home in the Hudson Heights trailer park. When police entered the residence, they say they found Melissa Brown, 31, and Marshall Kelley, 44, of Apple Springs, were in the process of making meth with the "shake 'n' bake" method, where components of meth are put in a bottle and shaken up to make the drug.

Hill said Hudson Police did not know how to properly handle the explosive elements, so they called him. Hill arrived and let the pressure out of the bottle.

Roberts, Brown and Kelley are all charged with possession of certain chemicals with intent to manufacture.

    More than a few tar-covered tires are hanging on to the parking lot of a Lufkin tire shop.  On August 31, newly laid asphalt on Loop 287 started sticking to tires of those driving, leaving many of the cars un-driveable. As of Friday, the Texas Department of Transportation hadn't come out with an official cause for the incident, but that hasn't stopped over 600 people from filing claims with them.
