NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (News Release) -

On 09-16-2011 the Nacogdoches County Constable Office Precinct 4 along with the Texas Department of Public Safety Narcotics Division executed a search warrant on Cr. 525 in Nacogdoches County that resulted in the seizure of a methamphetamine laboratory.

Constable Bridges stated that his office along with DPS has had an ongoing investigation in the manufacturing of methamphetamine for the last three months. Both agencies were able to collect enough information and evidence to establish probable cause for a search warrant on the residence Wednesday evening. Constable Bridges stated that both agencies identified a male subject that was manufacturing and selling methamphetamine in Nacogdoches County. Through surveillance and other forms of police investigations the Constable Office was able to obtain a search warrant for the residence and property of Terry Boozier. During the investigation both agencies were able to make a purchase of methamphetamine from Boozer.

Late Wednesday evening both agencies executed the search warrant on the property. Constable Bridges stated that a methamphetamine laboratory was found inside of a metal building that was adjacent to Boozer's house. There were a number of different types of chemicals found on the property that were being using to manufacture methamphetamine. Constable Bridges stated there were a lot of dangerous chemicals at this lab and we were fortunate to be able to get this of the street. A dump site was also found on the property, which contained evidence that the manufacturing of methamphetamine had been occurring on the property for some time.

Bridges stated that one of the major affects of methamphetamine is that it makes users of the drug very paranoid. It is not uncommon to find things scattered out and hidden in different areas as well as chemicals being mixed with other chemicals. A lot of these chemicals being used to make methamphetamine are very dangerous in itself. But when these chemicals are mixed together it makes them more volatile and that much more dangerous for us to have to process.
