HENDERSON COUNTY, Texas (KETK) – A 60-year-old woman was arrested early Friday morning for possession of methamphetamines after committing traffic violations and erratic behavior.
60-year-old Lana McGee was stopped at the intersection of Chase Street and Murchison Street just before 2 a.m.
She committed several traffic violations, according to the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office and when she was questioned, she said she was very upset over a lost lottery ticket.
Sgt. Jonathan Daille noted that the ticket was in McGee’s hand.
A Eustace Police Department K-9 team was called to assist with the stop. Sgt. Daille was advised by Eustace Police Department K-9 Officer Hillary Bateman that her K-9 gave a positive alert for the odor of narcotics.
Officers searched the vehicle and found a pencil box that contained meth and glass pipes used to smoke the drugs under the passenger’s seat.
