NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A deputy with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office arrested a woman whom he reported finding meth hidden in her vehicle after he arrested her for driving without a license Sunday night.
According to the arrest report, the deputy was on patrol when he saw a vehicle traveling westbound on State Highway 7 West, near the intersection of County Road 613, that did not have a registration sticker. The deputy pulled over the vehicle, which was driven by Deanna Lusk, 39. Lusk said she did not have a driver's license and appeared to be nervous and shaking, according to the deputy.
The deputy ran her name through dispatch and discovered she did not have a license and Lusk said she also did not have insurance. The deputy asked if he could search the vehicle but she said he could not because it was not her vehicle.
The deputy then placed her under arrest for no driver's license and did an inventory of the vehicle and reported finding meth, drug paraphernalia and $250 in a small camera case. He also reported finding multiple text messages in her cellphone dealing with where she bought and sold drugs to different people.
Lusk is charged with first-degree delivery of a controlled substance.
