LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Pct. 1 Constable Tom Selman made a traffic stop Wednesday and arrested a Lufkin man with two outstanding first-degree felony drug delivery charges.
A search of the man's vehicle resulted in the seizure of three bags of crystal methamphetamine and seven bags of powder cocaine that were packaged and ready for sale.
Omar Francisca Doggett, 43, is still being held in the Angelina county Jail on two first-degree felony manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance between 4 and 300 grams charges, a third-degree possession of a meth between 1 and 4 grams charge, and a third-degree felony possession of cocaine between 1 and 4 grams charge.
Collectively, Doggett's bail amount has been set at $170,000.
Selman said that he was on patrol on Lufkin's Timberland Drive when he received word that there were two outstanding felony warrants on Doggett from Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Investigation Division agents. The constable added that Doggett had been selling meth and that undercover DPS agents had made some buys from him.
After Selman spotted Doggett's red 2008 Nissan Sentra heading north on Timberland Drive, he made a traffic stop on the vehicle and arrested Doggett on the two outstanding warrants.
Two DPS troopers that had been in the area assisted Selman in securing Doggett and his car.
When the law enforcement officers searched Doggett's car, they found three bags of crystal meth and seven bags of powder cocaine packaged up and ready for sale along with numerous small baggies that "are used by narcotics dealers to re-package user amounts for sale," Selman said.
Doggett was also in possession of currency with serial numbers that had been recorded and used as "buy money" that DPS had given to Doggett in a previous narcotics delivery in February," Selman said.
According to Angelina County jail records, Doggett has been arrested 27 times. His first arrest was in 1994, and he has been arrested for theft, forgery, burglary of a building, delivery of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone, criminal non-support, evading arrest, deadly conduct, and a variety of misdemeanor charges.
