Texas DPS Trooper Arrested For Meth
CLEBURNE (AP) – An off-duty Texas Department of Public Safety trooper has been charged with possessing methamphetamine.
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday announced the arrest of Jimmy Jay Gillman of Cleburne on a charge of possession of a controlled substance. DPS has suspended Gillman pending the outcome of an internal investigation.
Sheriff’s Lt. Tim Jones says Gillman was arrested Tuesday night after being under surveillance and observed taking possession of meth. The 47-year-old Gillman was arrested while in the front yard of his residence. Gillman’s girlfriend was in the home but released after the property was searched.
Sheriff’s officials had no details on an attorney for Gillman, whose bond was set at $100,000.
Cleburne is 25 miles south of Fort Worth.
