NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - From the Nacogdoches County Constable Office, Precinct 4
The Nacogdoches County Constable Office Precinct 4 has seized 5 ounces of Crystal Methamphetamine from a traffic stop on highway 59 s. Constable Bridges stated that Deputy Constable Allen stopped a white ford passenger car late Thursday afternoon after observing the driver of the car almost cause a traffic accident. Upon contact with the driver, and lone occupant of the vehicle, Deputy Allen could smell the odor of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle. After speaking with the driver, she displayed signs of being overly nervous, and her story was just not adding up.
Deputy Constable Allen began a search of the motor vehicle where he located a can of instant potatoes in the trunk of the vehicle that did fit in with the other luggage inside of the car. When inspecting the can further, it had been modified and contained a false bottom. Inside the can Deputy Allen found 4. 8 ounces of crystal methamphetamine that carries a street value of over $12,000.00 dollars.
