LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - After a narcotics investigation, Angelina County Sheriff's Office deputies on March 28 arrested a 45-year-old Huntington woman who allegedly dealt Hydrocodone pills from her mobile home.

Tina Tullos Fondren was charged with four counts of delivery of a dangerous drug, which is a state jail felony. Fondren posted a collective bail of $6,000, and was released from the Angelina County jail the next day.

The four delivery charges stem from separate offenses in a 30-day period in late 2012.

According to the arrest affidavit, an ACSO narcotics investigator worked with a confidential informant, and gave the individual cash to purchase Hydrocodone pills. Then the investigator followed the CI to a gray mobile home in the 600 block of Johnson Street in Huntington.

A woman later identified as Fondren answered the door, and the CI went into the residence.  When the confidential informant came out of the residence, the investigator followed the person to a pre-arranged meeting spot and recovered eight white pills.

The affidavit stated that video evidence showed the CI following Fondren into a bedroom, where the person exchanged the cash for eight pills from a pill bottle in a black metal box.
