Two men were arrested earlier this week in Rusk County for drug possession.
About 10:15 p.m. Tuesday, Rusk County Sheriff’s Officer K9 Deputy Jason Smith and certified narcotic dog, Caro, discovered phencyclindine (PCP) during a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 59 North in Rusk County, according to a news release.
Smith arrested Crayton Lytrone Davis, 33, of Houston, and Marcus Marquis Armstard, 33, of Monroe, La., after finding a plastic bottle containing about 12 ounces of suspected PCP in the vehicle console, the release states. The street value of the PCP was estimated to be about $10,000. Both suspects were transported to the Rusk County Justice Center.
According to a news release, Armstard also had an active warrant out of Nacogdoches County for possession of marijuana.
Rusk County Precinct 5 Justice of the Peace Judge Joe Sorrells charged both suspects with possession of a controlled substance, a first-degree felony, and both bonds were set at $50,000.
Davis and Armstard remained in the Rusk County Justice Center on Thursday morning.
