Couple's fight leads to drug arrest

by Emily Waldrep

Tyler County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a call September 14 at approximately 10 p.m. at the Jiffy Mart in Colmesneil regarding a fight between a man and a woman fighting in the parking lot.

When they arrived, deputies identified the driver as Brandon Camp, age 28, of Beaumont, and the passenger as Amber Poe, age 27, also of Beaumont.

Deputies separated each individual to find out why the fight had occurred. Both subjects admitted to fighting in public and said they had gotten into argument because they couldn't find a family camp house they were trying to visit.

Consent to search the vehicle was given but as the Deputy began to search the car, Poe tried to walk back and get something from her purse. Deputies asked if anything in her purse was illegal and she stated that there was nothing illegal in her purse.

Deputies obtained consent to search her purse and found a grey wallet with three needles, one loaded with a liquid substance believed to be methamphetamines. Poe admitted that the substance was in fact meth.

The vehicle search revealed a black bag with two more needles that Poe claimed to be hers.

Poe was arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct and Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1.

Kemp was placed under arrest and charged with Disorderly Conduct.
