Traffic stop leads to narcotics arrest

On Monday, May 3rd, Corporal Shane Richards, along with C.I.D. Sergeants Randy Clay and Caleb Loftis, went to a location on NW 3325 in Brushie Prairie attempting to serve a felony arrest warrant. Officers did not make contact with the wanted person at the location but as Corporal Richards was leaving the area, he noticed a vehicle traveling on NW 3325 and both occupants were littering. Corporal Richards stopped the vehicle for a littering investigation and made contact with the two occupants. During the course of the investigation it was determined that the passenger gave a fictitious name and DOB and upon positive identification was found to be wanted for an outstanding felony parole warrant. The officers also located a small black pouch that contained suspected Methamphetamine, a small white cardboard type box with paraphernalia inside as well as a locked wooden box that had all been thrown from the vehicle. Both occupants were taken into custody and transported to the Justice Center where Corporal Richards obtained a search warrant for the locked wooden box. The wooden box contained approximately 97.8 grams of suspected Methamphetamine, digital scales, baggies and records. One suspect was charged with manufacture/delivery controlled substance PG 1 over 4 under 200 grams, parole violation warrant, tampering with physical evidence and fail to ID as a fugitive. The second suspect was charged with manufacture/delivery of controlled substance PG 1 over 4 under 200 grams, tampering with physical evidence, and possession of controlled substance PG 3 under 28 grams. This was an outstanding job by our officers and it all began with littering. So, don't mess with Texas.   Sheriff Elmer Tanner

National Correctional Officers Week

The NCSO will be observing National Correctional Officers Week Sunday, May 2nd through Saturday, May 8th. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5187, creating "National Correctional Officers' Week." Each year, the first full week in May is recognized as National Correctional Officers and Employees Week, commemorating the contributions of correctional officers and personnel who work in jails, prisons, and community corrections across the country. The services provided by the dedicated and hard working men and women of corrections are vital to every community. I would also like to thank and recognize the families of these correctional officers as well. These men and women are also husbands, wives, mothers and fathers and often have to miss school activities, holidays, weekends and other activities with their families because of the job. Would you please join me in thanking our Navarro County Sheriffs Office correctional officers for their dedication and commitment to our community. I very much appreciate each and every one of you and the service that you provide daily.   Sheriff Elmer Tanner
