LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Following an investigation by the Criminal Investigation Division of the Texas Department of Public Safety, a 33-year-old Lufkin man was arrested for possession of approximately 2.5 pounds of methamphetamine.

Jose Pantoja is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a felony charge of possession of meth between 1 and 400 grams. His bail has been set at $50,000.

According to Trooper David Hendry, a DPS spokesman, Lufkin DPS CID agents arranged a bogus meth delivery with Pantoja within the Lufkin city limits. When they searched his vehicle, they allegedly found about a half pound of meth.

After Pantoja gave the CID agents consent to search his home, they went there and found another approximately 2 pounds of meth and a pistol.

Pantoja was arrested and transported to the Angelina County Jail.
