Nacogdoches woman arrested on another meth-related charge

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

While serving an out-of-county warrant on another suspect Monday, Nacogdoches Police officers arrested a 39-year-old woman and charged her with possession of a controlled substance believed to be methamphetamine.

Deanna Marie, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a charge of possession of a controlled substance between 200 and 400 grams, which is a first-degree felony. Her bond has been set at $25,000.

According to Sgt. Greg Sowell, the public information officer for the Nacogdoches Police Department, NPD officers and an out-of-county officer teamed up to serve a warrant on another suspect at a residence in the 1100 block of Harris Street. While they were searching the home, they found Lusk in possession of a substance believed to be methamphetamine.

Lusk had an earlier, unrelated run-in with the law back in July. A Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputy pulled Lusk over on State Highway 7 West after he noticed that she didn't have a registration sticker on her car. When the deputy ran her name, he also found that she was driving without a license and had no insurance.

Because Lusk appeared to be nervous, the deputy asked if he could search her car. She told him not, stating it wasn't her vehicle.

At that point, the deputy arrested her for driving without a license. When he did an inventory of the vehicle, he reported finding meth, drug paraphernalia, and $250 in a small camera case. He also reported finding multiple text messages in her cell phone about where she bought and sold drugs to different people.

For that incident, Lusk was charged with delivery of a controlled substance, a first-degree felony.

    More than a few tar-covered tires are hanging on to the parking lot of a Lufkin tire shop.  On August 31, newly laid asphalt on Loop 287 started sticking to tires of those driving, leaving many of the cars un-driveable. As of Friday, the Texas Department of Transportation hadn't come out with an official cause for the incident, but that hasn't stopped over 600 people from filing claims with them.
