Damaged Tail Lamp Opens Door to Arrest

Harold Marcantel, 52A Cumby Police officer noted a damaged driver side tail lamp on a gray minivan that passed the officer Saturday afternoon around 1:30 near the 111 mile marker on I-30.  A traffic stop for the violation followed and opened the door to much more.

When the traffic stop was made, the driver was moving erratically in the driver’s seat and reaching into the passenger side seat. When the Cumby officer approached the minvan, the driver was extremely nervous. The officer asked Harold Joseph Marcantel, 52, of Cedar Hill to exit the auto. When he did exit, in plain sight was a pipe commonly used to smoke marijuana. With permission to  search the vehicle, a small black baggie containing a substance suspended to be methamphetamine. The substance weighted approximately 6.1-grams.
