TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Trinity County Sheriff's deputies, Trinity Police officers, and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers joined forces to make several meth-related arrests over the course of the past few weeks.
According to the Trinity Police Department's Web page, the Trinity Police Department, DPS troopers acted on information shared and developed by Trinity County Sheriff Woody Wallace and the Trinity Police Department and arrested Paul Kinser, 41, on FM 356 in the Pagoda area on Sept. 16. Kinser was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance-methamphetamine.
At approximately the same time that day, Trinity County law enforcement agencies served a residential search warrant at 410 Elm Street.
Following the search, Leyte Webb, 33, Carl 'Bubba" McWilliams III, 47, and Cody Walton, 28, were arrested at the scene. All three suspects were charged with felony possession of a controlled substance (meth), felony possession of a prohibited weapon (an explosive device), and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
A short time later, DPS troopers arrested Jeremy "Fish" Whatley, 31, at a residence on Pineland Drive in the Glendale area. Whatley was arrested and charged with felony possession of meth and felony tampering with evidence.
On Sept. 17, Wallace and a TCSO investigator arrested Casey Walton, 31. Working with information from the other meth arrests, the law enforcement officials were able to find enough evidence to charge Casey Walton with felony theft in connection to an AC unit.
"The A/C unit was stolen from a residence in the Trinity Cove Subdivision; it was later allegedly sold and installed at a White Rock Subdivision by Walton and another male subject," the report stated.
More arrests could be pending in this joint effort by the Trinity County Sheriff's Office, the Trinity Police Department, and the Texas Department of Public Safety.
