TOWN BLUFF – A Hardin County man was arrested last week on multiple charges in Town Bluff.

According to Tyler County Sheriff Bryan Weatherford, deputies with the Tyler County Sheriff’s Office were patrolling in Town Bluff late Friday afternoon along FM 92 south, and during a traffic stop, a man who the officers knew to be wanted on multiple felony offenses, jumped out of the back door of the vehicle they had stopped.

Billy Gene Stephens, a 48-year-old Silsbee man, began to run down a road toward the dam spillway at Town Bluff. He was apprehended by the officers after a pursuit. After the arrest, the deputies located a crystal-like substance with the consistency of methamphetamine in the pocket of Stephens’ pants, along with marijuana.

Stephens was booked into the Tyler County Jail and charged with a variety of offenses, including the meth possession charge; evading arrest or detention on foot. He had several warrants on charges ranging from abandoning or endangering a child; evading arrest or detention and a no bond warrant for his third driving while intoxicated arrest out of Jasper County.

Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Jim Moore set Stephens’s bond at $90,500.
