Angelina County (KYTX) -

Sheriff's deputies arrested 42-year-old Tracy Janet Thomas Friday night after pulling her over for having several existing traffic-related arrest warrants.

Sheriff Greg Sanches said a search of Thomas' car quickly turned up a large collection of illegal narcotics and other drug paraphernalia.

Thomas was allegedly carrying 117 grams of methamphetamine, 3.2 grams of heroin, 3.4 grams of Marijuana and half a gram of morphine. Additionally, Sanches said Thomas had varying quantities of Xanax, Hydrocodone, Carisoprodol, and clonazepam for which she did not have valid prescriptions. The meth alone was worth nearly $12,000.

Aside from the drugs, Thomas is accused of carrying two scales, hundreds of small zip lock bags commonly used in the illegal distribution of illegal narcotics and more than $1,500 in cash.

Thomas was charged with the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, possession of heroin, possession of morphine and possession of drug paraphernalia. She's being held in the Angelina County Jail on $14,500 bond.
