TRINITY, TX (KTRE) -

A call of a naked woman knocking on doors led to the arrest of her meth dealer, according to the Trinity County Sheriff.

Sheriff Woody Wallace said dispatch received a call around 6 a.m. of a naked woman beating on a door on French Road. Deputies responded but could not find anyone.

Wallace said a second call came an hour later and deputies responded again and found a naked woman sitting in a cedar tree. As they were coaxing her down, dispatchers received another call, this time of a naked man running around and knocking on doors in the same area. Wallace said they were able to round up both naked people, who happened to be in a dating relationship.

"We got them dressed and finally got them to admit they had been on some dope," Wallace said.

Wallace said he asked them who their meth dealer was.

"They said they didn't know his name, but they had been texting him," Wallace said. "I said, 'well, text him again.'"

Wallace said the couple texted their dealer again and set up another buy. Then Wallace sent two from Trinity police and an investigator to the house.

Around 2 p.m., Wallace said the dealer showed up and met the officers.

They arrested Jacob Walker, 42, of Trinity. Wallace said the couple could have been arrested for public intoxication and indecent exposure, but because they were cooperative and no longer a danger, he let them off.

Walker is charged with second-degree delivery of a controlled substance.

"We have been developing information about Walker for some time now," said Trinity Police Chief Steven Jones. "This incident happened and we seized the opportunity to bust him."
