FRED – Tyler County Sheriff Bryan Weatherford reported that a recent arrest in Fred uncovered drugs, including LSD.

Weatherford said that deputies with the Tyler County Sheriff’s Office were patrolling in the Fred area on the night of Saturday, Feb. 17, and stopped a Ford truck along FM 92 for a traffic violation. The driver, Casey Rachelle Read, a 45-year-old woman from Silsbee, consented to having the truck searched. A passenger, Kevin Anthony Eason, 41, of Fred, was also present.

During the search, the deputies uncovered a baggie containing marijuana. Both the driver and passenger were taken into custody and transported to the Tyler County Jail on a possession of marijuana charge, for greater than two ounces.

Before entering the jail, Read admitted to having three LSD tabs on her person, hidden in her bra. Weatherford said that a female jailer was able to recover a small bag from Read containing the hallucinogenic drug, which got her a felony possession of a controlled substance charge.

Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Ken Jobe set Eason’s bond at $1,200 and Read’s at $7,500. Both have since bonded out of jail.
