Lufkin woman arrested on drug charges

by Emilly Waldrep

Tyler County Sheriff's Deputy Brian Seales was on routine patrol at Lake Tejas in Colmesneil Monday, May 27, when he saw a female sitting in the back drivers side of a vehicle smoking an unknown object.

According to Tyler County Sheriff Bryan Weatherford, the woman moved the object she was smoking in front of her and attempted to hide it behind her leg when she saw Deputy Seales approaching.

Seales smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle and stopped to question the female, who was identified as Shynisky Marie Glenn, age 18, of Lufkin. Permission was given to search the vehicle, and Seales observed an unmarked prescription pill bottle with some white pills and dark colored bag rolled up in the seat the Glenn was sitting in.

"Glenn stated that the pills were her pain medication," Weatherford said.

Deputies also located a purse nearby which Glenn admitted belonged to her. After searching the purse, deputies uncovered a clear bag of marijuana. The dark colored bag and the pill bottle in the vehicle also contained marijuana. The pills were identified as four bars of Xanax.

The marijuana field-tested positive, and weighed approximately 5.4 grams.

Glenn was placed under arrest for Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 3 in a Drug Free Zone, Possession of Marijuana in a Drug Free Zone and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

"Since Lake Tejas is school property, it is a drug free zone," Weatherford said.
