NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

The Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office arrested two people Thursday afternoon after the homeowner lied about a wanted man being in her home, according to authorities.

Jackie Lynn Tennison, 49, of Cushing, is charged with hindering apprehension. Billy Jack Williams, 48, of Lufkin, is charged with felony theft.

According to Chief Deputy Doug Richardson, deputies learned Williams was at Tennison's residence on County Road 880 and arrived to serve an arrest warrant.

Tennison answered the door and said she had not seen Williams in a couple days, Richardson said. Deputies then asked if they could search her house and she gave consent.

Williams was sitting on the couch in the living room, Richardson said.

Both were arrested and taken to the Nacogdoches County Jail.
