Two Texas Men Arrested After Sheriff's Deputies Uncover Meth During a Routine Traffic Stop

On January 28th, 2013, a Lawrence County Sheriff's deputy thought he was making a routine traffic stop for a simple tint violation. When he approached the vehicle and began speaking with the occupants, 62-year-old Bobby Nichols of Austin, Texas and 47-year-old Hershel Hawkins of Horseshoe Bay, Texas, the deputy noticed both men seemed quite nervous and their bodies were shaking. As a result, deputies completed a full search of the vehicle and uncovered approximately 117 grams of meth ice and a glass pipe that still had meth ice inside. Before deputies began searching the men themselves, Hawkins reportedly spoke up to reveal that he had meth ice on his person. Deputies found 10 additional grams of meth ice in his pocket. Both men were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia.
