MirandaMirandaWOODVILLE – A man who was seen carrying an axe while walking along a county road was arrested, according to Tyler County Sheriff Bryan Weatherford.

The incident occurred at approximately 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 5. Deputies were on a routine patrol when they were dispatched to CR 1040, south of Woodville, in reference to a suspicious male subject who was walking in the roadway and carrying an axe, reportedly.

The subject, Jose Luis Miranda, a 30-year-old Woodville man, was found to have two active arrest warrants, both for criminal mischief charges, issued by Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Ken Jobe.

When the deputies searched Miranda’s person, they discovered a clear plastic baggie with a crystalline substance, which field-tested positive for methamphetamine.

Miranda was taken into custody and transported to the Tyler County Jail. He remains in custody, charged with possession of a controlled substance (for greater than one gram, less than four grams) and the two previous charges that resulted in warrants.

Miranda’s bond was set at $10,000 by Pct. 1 Justice of the Peace Trisher Ford.
