NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX - A traffic stop by the Nacogdoches County Constable Office Precinct 4 has resulted in the arrest and confiscation of methamphetamine from an Etoile man. Constable Jason Bridges and Deputy Allen conducted a traffic stop on FM 1275 for a traffic violation. A passenger in the motor vehicle, who was not secured by his safety belt, was identified as Robbie Wallace. Bridges stated that Officers observed that Wallace was very nervous and appeared to be under the influence of narcotics.  Officers observed a syringe in Wallace seat that contained methamphetamine. Deputies conducted a search of the motor vehicle that lead to the discovery of 6 grams of crystal methamphetamine that was found in the passenger seat floor board inside a shoe box.

During the search of the vehicle, Deputy Allen also found several ounces of a clear liquid substance and pills. We believe these items to be steroids, and more charges could be filed after they are analyzed by the crime lab. Constable Bridges stated that the Constable Office has been conducting an ongoing investigation into Wallace for several months for distributing methamphetamine in Precinct 4.

Robbie Wallace 27 years of age from Etoile Texas was arrested at the scene and charged with possession of a controlled Substance a 2nd Felony. Wallace was booked into the Nacogdoches County Jail.
