LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Officers with the Lufkin Police Department arrested a 34-year-old man Tuesday in connection to allegations that he was selling K2 from a home near Brookhollow Elementary.

Robert Criswell, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a first-degree manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone between 4 and 400 grams charge, a third-degree unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon charge, and a Class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana less than two ounces charge. Collectively, his bail amount has been set at $53,500.

Jessica Pebsworth, a spokeswoman for the Lufkin Police Department, said that Criswell was arrested after the Street Crimes Unit executed a search warrant on Criswell’s home in the 200 block of Hummingbird Lane, which is located two blocks from the elementary campus.

“An investigation into Criswell's activities was launched following numerous complaints from neighbors and Crime Stoppers tips,” Pebsworth said. “A search of the home uncovered 15 ounces of K2, less than an ounce of marijuana, assorted drug paraphernalia, undisclosed amount of cash and a Cobra .380 pistol with a magazine.”

Anyone wanting to report drug activity in their neighborhood, should call the Lufkin Police Department’s non-emergency number at (936) 633-0356. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (936) 639 TIPS.

Criswell’s arrest record dates back to 2002, and the Angelina County Jail web site shows he has been arrested 16 times since then. Some of the charges from his past arrests include, manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, evading arrest, failure to identify as a fugitive, possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, and numerous misdemeanor traffic charges.
