Major meth bust in Lumberton

Lumberton Police chief Danny Sullins reports officers recently made their largest single meth bust ever after discovering more than 400 grams of methamphetamine during a traffic stop April 27.

According to Sullins, officers made the traffic stop on Highway 96 in Lumberton.

“The driver was acting nervous, so they asked for consent to search the vehicle,” said Sullins. “After receiving consent, they discovered 404 grams of methamphetamine, more than 30 grams of crack cocaine, 5 ounces of synthetic marijuana, 31 Xanax bars, and a handgun.”

Police arrested Jamisha Lashun Myers, 22, of Beaumont, formerly of Silsbee, on felony drug charges, misdemeanor drug charges and unlawfully carrying a weapon, Sullins reported. She was in Hardin County Jail on $156,000 in bonds after her arrest. She has since made bond and been released. Sullins said she has no criminal history.
