The Angelina County Sheriff's Office is charging a Lufkin woman on a drug possession charge, stemming from a March incident in which authorities say she was caught with meth in her purse.

Cassie Shelina Bynum, 28, is charged with possession of a controlled substance.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, a law enforcement officer saw two women buy a pack of psuedoephedrine at Walgreens in Lufkin on March 9, before going to CVS in Lufkin.

The officer pulled them over at Kmart in Lufkin after they did not signal a change of lanes, according to the report.

The officer arrested Bynum and a man, Stephen Wayne Hudson, 21, on outstanding arrest warrants.

According to the affidavit, another officer searched Bynum's purse and found a glasses case with two syringes, a small electronic scale and a cigarette pack which contained a small yellow pill, later identified as xanex.

Authorities charged Bynum with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a dangerous drug.

The contents in one of the syringes later tested positive for meth.

A warrant was obtained for Bynum's arrest on March 10. She was arrested on the charge on Monday and released on a $1,500 bail bond.
