Cocaine Arrest


Monday evening, a traffic stop in the Cleveland area by the Liberty county Sheriff’s Office Interdiction Unit led the arrest of two men, one with an outstanding warrant. The Liberty County Sheriffs department reports the driver was identified as David Timothy Johnson, age 60 from Arkansas. Also said to be from Arkansas was the passenger Steven Lamar Hines, 43 who was the registered owner of the vehicle. Steven Hines had an active warrant for Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance. Hines, the owner of the car allowed law enforcement to search as did the driver. The search revealed two aftermarket compartments that were located in the front bumper area. The compartments contained multiple bundles that were wrapped in black duct tape. The bundles were removed and it was found that they contained a white powdery substance that tested positive for cocaine. The approximate weight of the cocaine was 4,420 grams. That weight is equivalent to four (4) kilos. Hines and Johnson were both arrested and charged with Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance – a First Degree Felony.
