Lufkin man gets 4 years on meth charge

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man was sentenced Friday to four years in prison in connection to a fire started from a meth lab explosion in December.

James Scott Harrelson, 28, pleaded guilty in Judge Gerald Goodwin's courtroom to possession of certain chemicals to transport, possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

Harrelson waived a grand jury indictment to enter the plea.

The investigation began in December when deputies arrived at the scene on Coach Redd Road. They say they smelled what they knew to be the odor of a meth lab.  They knocked on the door to a small camper and when the occupant opened the door, deputies noticed the place to be full of smoke and the odor of the lab became overwhelming.

Arrested were Beth Ann Fetzer, 32, Harrelson, Alice Shianne Horton and James Thomas Ward, 25.
