Meth Found in Truck at Car Wash

On Wednesday, April 12, Lexington Police Officers Walton, Terpstra, and ACO Landrum, along with Lee County Deputies Nurse and Nelson, were looking into a vehicle of interest at the Lexington Car Wash when a large amount of methamphetamines were located in the subject vehicle.

The truck matched the description of a vehicle that may have been involved in criminal activity, so the deputies made contact with the driver of the vehicle, who refused to speak to them and left the scene. Due to the fact that the truck had no registration or tags on it, the vehicle was impounded. Officer Walton secured a warrant, which turned the impound into a search warrant and 11.1 grams of methamphetamine, along with scales and individual baggies were found, all of which indicated a possible drug dealer.

A warrant was issued for the driver, who was picked up by Milam County on Saturday and arrested for the outstanding warrant. His name is being withheld due to the open investigation.
