LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Lufkin Police arrested a man after responding to a call from his mother who was concerned about his health Friday night.

Police and EMTs responded to the 100 block of Fred Street at 8:39 p.m. after a woman had called 911 and said she was concerned about her son, Donald Lee Aldrich, 68, because she could only see the bottom portion of him, but was not physically able to walk outside to check on him.

EMTs found him laying outside of an open portable building just outside the door, but did not find any medical problems.

While EMTs were evaluating him, officers noticed two large freezer-type ziplock bags, which contained a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, according to the report. Officers located a third bag, which contained small sections of marijuana cigarettes that had already been smoked but contained a small amount of suspected marijuana, according to the report.

The total weight of the marijuana was 1.5 pounds, according to the report.

Aldrich is charged with felony possession of marijuana. He was released from the Angelina County Jail after posting a $1,500 bond.
