On November 22, Deputies with the Tyler County Sheriff's Department responded to a disturbance on County Road 3140 off F.M. 3065 in Tyler County after being advised there was a fight in progress. Upon their arrival, they found the two fighting men had been separated and were identified as Shelby Tyler Moore, 18, of Woodville, and Randall William Warner, 41, of Colmesneil.
According to Sheriff Bryan Weatherford, several deputies arrived on scene, and Chief Deputy Phil Ryan spoke with Moore and tried to obtain his identification. Moore reported that his driver's license was in the back bedroom of a residence on the property where he had been staying. Consent to search the room was given.
Once Deputy Ryan was inside the room, he noted the scent of marijuana and observed a box that contained two glass pipes commonly used in smoking marijuana and five plastic baggies with white residue in them. Moore advised Deputy Ryan that another female, Kimberlyn Randall Warner, 19, of Woodville, was also living in the room with Moore.
Deputies then spoke with the owner of the residence and were given consent to search the remainder of the residence, along with the outbuildings.
Deputies began a search in the master bedroom occupied by Randall Warner and Lisa McClendon, 44, of Colmesneil.
"We uncovered a list of illegal items including approximately 20 plastic baggies with residue that tested positive for methamphetamines, marijuana pipes, other marijuana paraphernalia, a large digital scale, syringes, a glass methamphetamine pipe, a clear plastic baggie with a green substance that appeared to be bath salts, and prescription pill bottles with other individuals' names on them that did not reside at the residence," Weatherford said. "Randall Warner admitted to methamphetamine baggies belonging to him, but did not claim ownership to all the drug paraphernalia."
Kimberlyn Randall Warner, Lisa McClendon and Shelby Moore were all arrested and charged with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Randall William Warner was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance and his bond was set at $5,000.
The Tyler County Sheriff's Department has had and will continue to have a zero tolerance policy regarding drug use in the county.
