Drug trafficking investigation leads to three felony arrests

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, Texas – Three Nacogdoches men were arrested Wednesday as the result of an ongoing drug investigation by the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office. Michael Taundre Davis, 46, Joe Brownie Robinson III, 47, and Larry Dewayne Skinner, 38, were taken into custody by NCSO deputies. Davis faces a first-degree felony for the manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance and a Class-B misdemeanor for possession of marijuana. He was also arrested on
an outstanding San Augustine County warrant for first-degree felony manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance. Robinson and Skinner both face a single state-jail felony charge each for possession of a controlled substance.
Davis, who was wanted for the San Augustine County warrant, was pulled over and placed under arrest by a deputy on patrol at the intersection of University Drive and Southeast Stallings Drive around 1:42 p.m. Tuesday. During a search of the vehicle, deputies uncovered more than 7.3 oz. of methamphetamine in several
individual packages, along with marijuana, THC oil, promethazine, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia. A large quantity of U.S. currency was found in Davis’ pocket. During the investigation, information was developed leading deputies to obtain a search warrant for Davis’ residence in the 1300 block of Cleaver Street in Nacogdoches. Deputies contacted Robinson and Skinner at the home when they arrived to serve the warrant. Additional marijuana and methamphetamine were recovered at the house, and Robinson and Skinner were taken into custody on state-jail felony charges. The three arrests are part of an ongoing investigation into the sale and distribution of illegal drugs in Nacogdoches County, and additional charges are possible. The NCSO would like to thank the Nacogdoches Police Department for assisting in this case.
