The Nacogdoches County Constable Office Precinct 4 conducted a search warrant late Friday night that resulted in the arrest of two people. A search of the residence revealed a methamphetamine laboratory along with stolen property and methamphetamine oil found inside of the residence.
Constable Bridges stated that this has been an ongoing investigation for some time that originated in precinct 4. About 6:00 pm Friday night, the constable office executed the search warrant at Michael Stevenson residence on FM 225. A search of the residence was conducted an deputy constable’s found a gallon of methamphetamine oil inside the residence, along with drug pipes, plastic baggies, digital scales and other drug paraphernalia. Bridges stated that deputies also found a methamphetamine laboratory with chemicals that was concealed inside of a bucket that was found in the kitchen.
Deputy Constable also found stolen property, including a set of Bose speakers that were stolen from an area business about 6 months ago Bridges stated. Also found outside the residence were about 60 feet of cooper wire that was found in a burn pile. The cooper wire contains a very heavy thickness and we often see this type of wire being stolen from the oil field industry. Bridges stated that his office is still investigating where the cooper wire came from.
It is not uncommon when we are on these search warrants to find stolen property, Bridges stated. In the past three search warrants that we have conducted in the last week, two of those search searches has revealed stolen property.
Michael Stevenson 42 years of age and Kathryn Denese Pickens 37 years of age were both arrested at the scene and charged with possession of a controlled substance 1st felony and possession of chemicals with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. Constable Bridges stated that more charges are pending for theft. Both subjects were transported to the Nacogdoches County Jail.
