NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 30-year-old man on two felony drug charges after they went to one of the town’s motels in reference to a drug investigation early Monday morning and allegedly spotted narcotics in plain view.

Jermaine Alfonzo Tutt, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a first-degree felony manufacture or delivery between 4 and 200 grams and a second-degree felony manufacture or delivery charge between 1 and 4 grams charge. Collectively, his bail amount was set at $45,000.

According to the arrest affidavit, NCSO deputies went to the Motel 6 in the 3200 block of South Street at about 3:16 a.m. Monday. When they got there, they made contact with Tutt and saw drugs in plain view, the affidavit stated.

Tutt allegedly walked back into the motel room and started walking away from the deputies at “a fast pace.” The deputies talked to Tutt again, and he appeared nervous, according to the affidavit.

After the NCSO deputies got permission to search Tutt, they found a pouch containing a clear, plastic bag with a crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine and six white, rock-like objects believed to be crack cocaine, the affidavit state.

After further investigation, the deputies came to the conclusion that Tutt was delivering the drugs to the motel room to sell them, the affidavit stated.

Tutt was arrested and taken to the county jail without any further incident.
