Deputies Recover Stolen Chainsaw, Arrest 2 Men

A report regarding the possible location of a stolen chainsaw resulted in the arrest of two men Sunday morning.

Deputies responded on County Road 1100 just after 10 a.m. May 26 regarding the chain saw. They located Timothy Alan Goss, 48, of Sulphur Springs in a Ford F-150 pickup and found Craig David Lawler, 49, of Mineola cutting a tree with a saw, that was reportedly stolen, Hopkins County Sheriff’s Sgt. Michael Russell and Cpl. Todd Evans alleged in arrest reports.
Goss reportedly told deputies the chainsaw belonged to the victim. He agreed to let the deputies search a truck. They allegedly found suspected methamphetamine in it; he claimed ownership of it and was arrested for possession of 4 grams of more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. The substance weighed 12.97 grams, according to arrest reports. Goss was also charged with theft of property valued at less than $250 with two or more prior convictions, according to jail reports.

A records check showed Lawler to be wanted for violation of probation, which he was on for tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance in a drug-free zone. Consequently, Lawler was taken into custody at 10:15 a.m. May 26 on the warrants, according to arrest reports.

Goss remained in the county jail Monday in lieu of $30,000 on the controlled substance charge and $5,000 bond on the felony theft charge, according to jail reports.

Lawler also remained in jail on both violation of probation charges, according to arrest reports.
