LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - With the help of the Angelina County Sheriff's Office, the Pct. 4 Constable in Nacogdoches arrested a 28-year-old man Friday for outstanding warrants in connection to a March 4 traffic stop in which he was allegedly found in possession of meth and stolen property with child in the car.

Jerry Franklin Wall Jr., of Lufkin, was arrested and charged with two felonies - possession of a controlled substance and endangering a child - and a misdemeanor theft charge. No information on bail amounts was available.

According to Pct. 4 Constable David Stone, he and ACSO deputies went to serve the warrants on Wall at his girlfriend's residence in the 200 block of Hummingbird Lane. Walls was taken into custody without further incident.

Law enforcement officials also allegedly recovered an unspecified amount of stolen property at Walls' residence.

Stone said the endangerment charge stemmed from the fact that the 15-month-old child in Walls' care was in the car with him when he was allegedly in possession of drugs.

Other charges could be pending from other counties, Stone said.

Stone said he was grateful for the assistance of the ACSO deputies.
