Magnolia, July 17 – On July 16, 2019, Deputies with the Montgomery County Precinct 5 Constable Chris Jones’ Department made a traffic stop on a white car traveling on Hardin Store road. Deputies stopped the vehicle after seeing the car speeding and having an obscured license plate.
The vehicle pulled over on Trailwood Estates. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Randall (“Rocky”) Lawson (47) from Magnolia. The passenger in the vehicle was identified as Tracey Schneider (51) from Magnolia.
Lawson and Schneider were very nervous while Deputies spoke with them. Deputies then had both of them exit the vehicle. While Schneider was exiting the vehicle, Deputies noticed a clear crystal substance on her seat where she was sitting and on her pants. After speaking with the perps, the Deputies arrested them for possession of a controlled substance (Methamphetamine), a state jail felony. The weight of the Methamphetamine was 0.7 grams.
The Constable’s team took the perps to the Montgomery County Jail and released them to jail staff. While at the jail, it was discovered that Schneider had a bag containing Methamphetamine stuffed in her pants. The weight of the Methamphetamine was 7.1 grams.
Lawson and Schneider both stated that Lawson gave Schneider the drugs to hide while they were being pulled over. They were then charged with possession of a controlled substance (Methamphetamine), a second degree felony.
Constable Chris Jones commented, “The Precinct 5 Constable’s Office is dedicated to its community. The job that the citizens of Montgomery County have tasked our Deputies with will be carried out on a daily basis. We are thankful for the continued support and will give maximum effort to secure a safe environment for the people of our community.”
