NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A 28-year-old Nacogdoches man allegedly hid in a shed near his home on County Road 302 when deputies showed up to serve to felony warrants on him. He was quickly located and arrested on four felony charges.
When the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputies searched the property, they allegedly found methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, weapons, and a stolen four-wheeler. Quentin Bell is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on four state-jail felony charges - two counts of criminal non-support, theft between $1,500 and $20,000, and possession of a controlled substance less than one gram. He was also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, which is a third-degree felony.
Collectively, Bell's bonds have been set at $84,500.
The NCSO has had an ongoing investigation of Bell in regard to distribution and delivery of meth in Nacogdoches County, a press release stated. When the deputies obtained permission to search the home, they found less than one gram of meth, drug paraphernalia, and weapons.
The four-wheeler had been stolen from another location in Nacogdoches County about a month ago, according to the press release. The ATV caught the deputies' attention when they realized that it had been recently repainted, and they were able to identify its owner from a previous theft report.
Bell's assault and criminal non-support charges stemmed from outstanding arrest warrants.
