Athens — The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 35-year-old Bullard woman for manufacture of methamphetamine early Tuesday.

Megan Elizabeth Brown was booked into the Henderson County Jail Tuesday afternoon, with total bond set at $23,000 for manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance (four grams to 28 grams), possession of a controlled substance (three grams to 28 grams), tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and possession of marijuana (less than two ounces).

According to HCSO reports, Dep. Linus Moulton initiated a traffic stop on an SUV on County Road 4117 in the Lake Palestine area. Brown was arrested at the scene for driving without a valid license with a previous conviction.

Moulton began a search of the SUV and found a crystal-like substance that appeared to be methamphetamine. The deputy also found white rectangular pills that appeared to be Xanax, as well as a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana.

Manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance is a first-degree felony. The charge carries, upon conviction, a term of imprisonment of five to 99 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. The defendant can also be assessed a fine, not to exceed $10,000 in connection with the offense.
