Henderson County District Attorney's Office:

HENDERSON COUNTY (KYTX) - On Monday October 15, 2012, David Allen Thomas, formerly of Wills Point, was sentenced to a term in prison for 15 years for transporting narcotics in Henderson County. The sentencing took place in the 173rd Judicial District Court with the Honorable Judge Dan Moore presiding.

Assistant District Attorney Justin Weiner prosecuted the case on behalf of Scott McKee's District Attorney's Office. Following the sentencing Weiner stated: "This is a case where Deputy Collard followed his instincts. He was as persistent as the law allowed and that persistence is the reason that over 80 grams of meth are off of the streets of Henderson County. We will always aggressively prosecute people like Thomas who was poisoning our community with large quantities of narcotics." 

Thomas was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over late into the night on November 30th of last year. Deputy Kenny Collard of the Henderson County Sheriff's office initiated the traffic stop due to a defective headlamp. Collard immediately observed the odor of marijuana when he approached the vehicle. Thomas and the driver were asked to step out of the vehicle and as Thomas exited, Collard observed Thomas throw something into the tall grass on the side of the road.

During further investigation and a search of the vehicle, Collard discovered a Mary Kay bag which contained multiple baggies, digital scales, a pipe and a large gallon sized baggie with just over 80 grams of methamphetamine.
