LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Early Friday morning, Lufkin Police officers arrested a 47-year-old man who goes by the alias of "Devil" in connection to allegations that he smoked K2 with an individual at a home on Bynum Street and took the other man's 2013 Chevrolet pickup after he passed out.
Kevin Deral Martin, of Lufkin, was booked into the Angelina County Jail early Friday morning on a state-jail felony unauthorized use of vehicle charge and three misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia charges. He was released from the Jail Friday after he posted an undisclosed personal recognizance bond and a collective $1,500 bail amount for the three misdemeanor charges.
According to the Lufkin Police Department's daily activity report, a man told police that he believed someone he had been smoking K2 with had stolen his washer and dryer, television, and 2013 Chevrolet Silverado pickup with 35-inch rims and lifts valued at $39,000 after he passed out Thursday night.
The victim said because he was passed out, he didn't know what had happened until he woke up.
Around 5 a.m. Friday morning, an LPD officer spotted the man's stolen truck in the drive-through of Dee Dee's Donuts on North Timberland Drive.
A short time later, the officer made a traffic stop on the pickup, and arrested Martin on the unauthorized use of a vehicle charge, the report stated. He was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia because the officer found a crack pipe lying on the passenger seat, the report stated.
Martin's lengthy Angelina County arrest record dates back to 1993. In the past, Martin has been arrested for driving while intoxicated, assault, possession of a controlled substance, manufacture and/or delivery of a controlled substance, evading arrest with a vehicle, forgery of a financial instrument, and resisting arrest.
