On Wednesday, December 1, 2021, detectives from the Drugs Department of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office received news from the Hardin County Drugs Department that an Orange County wanted person may be hiding in Lumberton, Texas. Sheriff Jimmy Lane Mooney, along with his detectives, met with the Hardin County Narcotics Unit in Lumberton and encountered a residence in South Lumberton. Information was obtained from this location directing detectives to two Orange County locations.
After a lengthy search throughout the night, the wanted person, Brandy Michelle Crosson, was located in an apartment while hiding under a bed on Block 12000 of State Highway 87 North in Orange County and was taken into custody without incident.
Crosson was arrested and in possession of a controlled substance PG 1> 4 < 200 Gramm angeklagt, was ein Verbrechen zweiten Grades ist, nachdem während dieser Festnahme mehr Methamphetamin in ihrer Nähe gefunden wurde. Crosson wurde auch aufgrund von Haftbefehlen zur Herstellung/Lieferung einer kontrollierten Substanz festgenommen PG 1 > 4 <200 grams - 1NS Serious offense, no-show in possession of a controlled substance PG 1> 4 <200 grams - 2nd Degree Felony and Felony Bail Jumping – No Binding.
Crosson was indicted by an Orange County grand jury on October 6, 2021 after detectives brought multiple cases related to the distribution of methamphetamine in the Orange County area. Crosson has been on the run since then until she was captured.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Orange County District Attorney’s Office and the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in this investigation.
