Sergeant Lawerance Hicks was conducting a welfare check on someone at the roadside park on Highway 190 West just west of Hennigan Ball Park at approximately 4:30 a.m on Saturday, October 6 when he contacted a man, later indentified as James Brady McClure, age 38 of Nacogdoches, seated in a vehicle at the park.

“While talking with the subject, Sgt. Hicks observed a glass pipe lying on the center console inside of the vehicle,” Captain Mike McCulley of the Woodville Police Department said, “Sgt. Hicks knew the paraphernalia is used in the use of methamphetamines.”

McClure was placed under arrest for drug paraphernalia, and was then told that additional drugs were inside of the vehicle. After searching the trunk of the vehicle, Sgt. Hicks uncovered two baggies of suspected methamphetamines weighing approximately 3 grams.

McClure was charged with Possession of a Controlled substance (penalty group 1) more than one gram and less than four grams. Bond was set at $15,000.

McClure was also charged with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and those charges are pending.
