LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A man who police say was "scaring customers" at a Lufkin business accepted a 10-month jail sentence on a drug charge.

According to a previous report, Shane Phillip Gammons, 30, was at the R&R Washateria, located at 2404 East Denman Avenue, "scaring customers," back in September. On arrival, officers learned the Angelina County Sheriff's Office had an outstanding warrant for him on the offense of permit unlicensed person to drive.

A search prior to booking Gammons revealed he had in his possession syringes, a drug smoking pipe, a drug snorting straw and a substance believed to be meth.

In the courtroom Monday morning, Judge Paul White advised Gammons that if he had a drug problem, he hoped he would seek treatment for it once he is released.

Gammons receives five days credit for time already served. He pleaded guilty to a formal charge of possession of a controlled substance.
