Traffic Stop Leads to Narcotics Arrests

On Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at 09:33 a.m., JCSO Deputies stopped a vehicle for speeding on IH-10 near Brooks road. During the traffic stop the driver, 44 year old Houston resident Christopher Andrews, consented to a search of his vehicle. During the search Methamphetamine (Meth) was discovered in the car along with a bag of blue pills. Recently, pills similar to the ones found in this search have tested positive for Fentanyl. These pills will be tested for identification. Illicit pills such as these are becoming more common in American society. They are particularly dangerous because they are sold on the streets and purported as one drug but in reality could contain a lethal amount of another. The passenger, 33 year old Crosby resident Samantha Redfearn later advised that she had a bag of Meth and a Meth pipe concealed in her pants. These items were seized. Both Andrews and Redfearn were transported to the Jefferson County Correctional Facility where they were booked in for Possession of a Controlled Substance. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office continues its commitment to make Jefferson County a safer place to live. #OneCountyOneCommunity
