Nacogdoches, TX — A Nacogdoches man was arrested Thursday after a search warrant executed by the Nacogdoches County Precinct 4 constables and the Nacogdoches Police Department led to numerous narcotics.
Gregory Tramane Parks, 36, was arrested at the scene on Roberts street after being the subject of a weeks-long investigation.
The investigation began in Precinct 4 with the recovery of marijuana from two traffic stops in the Woden and Melrose areas. Later, the source of the marijuana was tracked to Parks’ home where surveillance showed a high volume of traffic to and from the residence, according to a Precinct 4 press release.
Two separate undercover buys of crack cocaine and marijuana were made and a search warrant was obtained.
The warrant was executed at about 9:30 a.m. by both agencies and one pound of marijuana, 18 grams of crack cocaine and 230 grams of Codeine were found, along with a loaded pistol.
