TRAFFIC ALERT: Slow down and allow yourself extra time to reach your destination this morning as there are icy patches on the road. Moments ago a vehicle slid off the road near the Shell station beside the entrance to Crown Colony. A Good Samaritan was able to pull them out and get them back on the road. #realtalk #slowdown #cellphonesdown #eyesontheroad

DRUG ARREST: James Price, 47, of Lufkin, was arrested for delivery of a controlled substance yesterday after the Special Services Unit served a search warrant at 1108 Williams Street. SSU detectives found cocaine, marijuana, several firearms and evidence of drug trafficking during a search of the home. “It’s a new year, but we have the same mission," SSU Sgt. Travis Strickland said. "It’s not too late for these poison pushers to make a New Year’s resolution to stop destroying our community or leave our city.” Price remains in the Angelina County Jail. To report drug activity in your neighborhood, call our non-emergency number at 936-633-0356 or Crime Stoppers at 936-639-TIPS if you wish to remain anonymous. #busted

MURDER ARRESTS (UPDATE - Harrison arrested): The Lufkin Police Department in conjunction with the U.S. Marshal Service on Thursday morning arrested two of three men wanted in the shooting death of a Lufkin man earlier this month.

He, along with the Grays are responsible for the murder of 38-year-old Jerone Jones. Jones died at a local hospital Dec. 18, following an argument with the men in the front yard of a home at 1819 Spence St.

SCAM ALERT: An elderly woman reported losing $15,000 in a Publishers Clearing House scam over the last six months. She told an officer that in June she was contacted by a man who said she won $3.5 million from Publishers Clearing House. He told her that she needed to send $8,000 to collect her prize money, so she took out a loan and mailed a check. She did not hear back from that man for a while, but eventually another man contacted her and told her to send another $7,000 to collect her prize money. She took out another loan and sent a check. Her contact with the men occurred from June to October from 1-876-340-8325. She never received the prize money and eventually reported it in hopes that no one else would fall victim to the scam. She is still making payments on the loans. Please share this information with your elderly loved ones who likely aren't on social media. They are typically the ones targeted in scams like this. #scamalert #publishersclearinghouse #howcouldyoubesoheartless

Merry Christmas from all of us at Lufkin Police Department! #thisiswhywecanthavenicethings

A HUGE thanks to the fine folks at Target for giving us a $10,000 Heroes & Helpers grant. That money allowed 100 less fortunate children to come shop at the store with an officer the last two days , ensuring they would have something under the Christmas tree. So many of them thoughtfully selected items for a family member instead of just shopping for themselves which is incredible. Thanks to Serv Pro, Selena Mitchell Farmers Insurance, Derby Ice Company, Mitchell Services and Design and all the other generous citizens and businesses who donated to our cause and bought raffle tickets. Those donations allowed Blue Santa to deliver Christmas to another 40 children. Blue Santa 2017 couldn't have been a success without you! #bluesanta #lpdcares #thatsawrap

Chief Gerald Williamson literally ran this guy down earlier this week after surprising him in an unmarked vehicle. He had a warrant for burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony offense.
