Two charged with felonies in drug investigation

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, Texas – Two Nacogdoches residents are facing felony and
misdemeanor charges as the result of a Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office investigation.
Otis Dale Solomon, 61, and Pamela Kay Stotts, 56, were taken into custody on Aug. 24, 2022, in
a joint operation by the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office and Texas Department of Public
Safety narcotics investigators.
Solomon is charged with two first-degree felonies for the manufacture or delivery of a
controlled substance, a first-degree felony for possession of a controlled substance, one thirddegree felony for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and a Class-B misdemeanor for
the possession of marijuana. Stotts faces a first-degree felony for possession of a controlled
substance, a third-degree felony for the unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, and a Class
B misdemeanor for possession of marijuana.
Both were taken into custody when sheriff’s office and DPS investigators served a search
warrant on their address in the 300 block of Evans Rd. Wednesday.
Inside the home, investigators recovered more than 14 ounces of methamphetamine with a
street value of more than $8,500, an ounce of marijuana, cash and other drugs, which have
been sent to a state laboratory for testing.
Property recovered at the scene is also believed to be related to theft and burglary cases in
Nacogdoches and other counties as well.
The case is still under investigation, and other charges are possible against Solomon and Stotts.
If convicted, each of the first-degree felony charges carries a potential punishment of between
five and 99 years of incarceration, while third-degree felonies are punishable by between two
and 10 years of incarceration. The charges also carry a potential fine up to $10,000.
