Man on Parole Arrested for Narcotics Trafficking
DAYTON, October 23, 2015 - On Thursday October 22, 2015 the Liberty County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office, assisted by Liberty County Precinct 2 Constable’s Office and the Daisetta Police Department, served a felony narcotics arrest warrant at 268 County Road 158 in Liberty, Texas.
Duncan was transported to the Liberty County Jail for incarceration where a $50,000.00 bond was set.
This investigation began after the Liberty County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office received numerous complaints and tips from the public that Duncan was selling methamphetamine in Dayton and throughout Liberty County. A Precinct 4 investigator began gathering intelligence on Duncan and after a period of time the investigator was able to infiltrate Duncan’s activities.
The Liberty County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office then conducted a narcotics investigation at the Brookshire Brothers parking lot located at 403 East Highway 90 in Dayton, Texas. Assistance was provided by the Dayton Police Department, the Daisetta Police Department and the Liberty County Precinct 2 Constable’s Office.
During the course of this investigation, Duncan allegedly delivered Methamphetamine to the investigator, who was working in an undercover capacity, which resulted in the issuance of a warrant for Duncan’s arrest.
Duncan was recently released from TDC and is currently on parole. The Liberty County Precinct 4 Constable’s began receiving complaints from citizens almost immediately after Duncan’s release from prison. Duncan’s parole officer was contacted and made aware of Duncan’s arrest and alleged activities.
Constable Thornton added “The conclusion of this investigation could not have come at a better time. Duncan was targeted for investigation which resulted in him being taken off the streets once again, maybe this time he will learn his lesson about dealing narcotics in Liberty County.”
If you have information that you would like to pass on, please e-mail Constable Thornton at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone at 936-258-4711. All tips are kept in the strictest of confidence.
Additionally, Constable Thornton urges all citizens to report any information as soon as possible to law enforcement and reminds them to be patient as some investigations can be lengthy.
