GUN BARREL CITY–Henderson County Deputy David Robertson was following up on a tip Tuesday evening from the Henderson County Narcotics Investigators about narcotics being sold from the Eagle Inn Motel in Gun Barrel City when he conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle leaving the motel.
The vehicle was driven by Jeremy Starr, a 38-year-old white male from the Gun Barrel area and occupied by three others. Veronica Lamb a 39-year-old female from the Seven Points area, Matthew Oliver a 29-year-old white male from the Gun Barrel area and Stetson McCoy a 24-year-old white male from Eustace.
Deputy Robertson stopped the vehicle at 8 p.m. May 21 on Legendary Lane for traffic violations. During the stop, Deputy Robertson used his K-9 partner Kan for an open air sniff of the vehicle. K-9 Kan had a positive alert on the vehicle which allowed Deputy Robertson to conduct a probable cause search of the vehicle. During a search of the vehicle a large amount of methamphetamines, scales, numerous drug paraphernalia and a large sum of cash money was located.
This led to the arrest of Veronica Lamb for the first degree felony of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance in penalty group 1 more than 4 grams but less than 200 grams.
Stetson Mccoy was charged with the second degree felony of possession of a controlled substance in penalty group 1 more than 4 grams but less than 200 grams. Both Matthew Oliver and the driver Jeremy Starr were charged with the state jail felony of possession of a controlled substance in penalty group 1 less than 1 gram.
The large sum of cash and vehicle used were seized by the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office since the vehicle was used in the felony delivery of the controlled substances.
