According to a statement from the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office (NCSO), a man from Nacogdoches was arrested Thursday afternoon after an ongoing investigation into the distribution of methamphetamine in Nacogdoches County. In recent months, deputies from the sheriff’s office have made several arrests involving possession of methamphetamine. Sheriff’s office investigators were able to identify an alleged distributor of the narcotic, identified as Jacob Miller.
Over a period of several months, the sheriff’s office was able to identify that the suspect was suspected of selling large amounts of methamphetamine. Investigators were able to identify that the suspect was receiving his narcotics through a supplier in California and using the courier to ship the narcotics to Nacogdoches County.
Sheriff’s investigators notified a United States Postal Inspector and requested assistance with the investigation. On Monday, May 17, a suspicious package was intercepted by the post office inspector which was intended for the target of this investigation.
The package was removed from the mail and a K-9 certified police dog conducted a free aerial search of the package which alerted to the presence of narcotics. A search warrant was obtained for the package which revealed 15 ounces of crystal methamphetamine.
The Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with the following agencies, the United States Postal Inspection Service, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Nacogdoches Police Department, set up a delivery monitored from package to suspect.
On Thursday, May 20, the suspect arrived at the Nacogdoches post office to collect the package. An undercover agent handed the package to the suspect. When the suspect left the post office with the package in hand (methamphetamine), he was arrested without incident by law enforcement.
The Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office took Jacob Miller, 35, from Nacogdoches, Texas into custody and transported him to the Nacogdoches County Jail. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance, a 1st degree felony.
The 15 ounces of crystalline methamphetamine that were seized have a market value of $ 7,500. Miller is believed to sell a pound or more of Crystal Methamphetamine on the streets of Nacogdoches each month. Bond was set at $ 75,000.
