The newly filled K-9 team at the Nacogdoches Police Department recently made a large narcotics seizure, just three weeks after it’s start.

     Officer Brian Eggebrecht with his partner, Hanna, stopped a 2007 Chevy Impala for a traffic violation early Thursday morning on NW Stallings Drive on Nacogdoches. Upon contact with the driver and passenger, Eggebrecht smelled the odor of marijuana in the vehicle.

     After a voluntary consent to search was given, Eggebrecht located 50 lbs of marijuana in the trunk of the car. The driver, Veronica Marie Hagberg, and passenger, Edgar Lopez, were arrested and transported to the Nacogdoches County Law Enforcement Center and charged with Possession of Marijuana, 3rd degree Felony.

    Maybe if we continue to round up ppl smoking pot, we can eradicate the entire drug from the town! One bust at a time. Did you hear about all 18 wheelers being required to stop at the weigh station to check for illegal drugs! I’m glad NPD is still trying to fight the war on drugs! Perhaps they will win!

      LOL @ Julie. The University would have to close and an estimated 30% of the population would be gone. Plus the cops make so much money off of it, they have no intention on stopping it. Be careful what you wish for.

      • What happens when you do drugs! says:

        the cops do drugs themselves! There are a group who smoke pot as a matter of fact! And a group that does meth(AKA the hard asses). There is even a group of cops who use cocaine! Dont believe that high authorities have the morality to use drugs??? Take a look at Mr Brad Frontenot, the State Farm Man! Doing heroin AND crack. The cops drug use in that town is no better than the majority of the populations.

          They’ll let an idiot say anything! WOW!

        • What an idiot says:

          I don’t think “Frontenot” is a cop. I don’t really see how an insurance salesman using drugs = cops are using drugs.

        • Concerned Taxpayer says:

          “what happens when you do drugs!” You type really unfounded statements, the part about the insurance man are not even fully correct. Guess this is a good example of your brain on drugs..

    Marijuana should be legal! We all know tobacco/alcohol are sooo much worse for you. Marijuana has many medical purposes! And is natural/organic.

    You must not be very aware of what is going on. A local insurance bigwig was recently arrested for cocaine distribution and another is slugging out a plea deal on a DWI charge as we speak. Both white, too.

      “stopped a 2007 Chevy Impala for a traffic violation early Thursday morning”

      I wonder what the violation could have been!

      • the god honest truth says:

        probably was no violation. Knowing NPD they saw someone of hispanic descent, pulled up right behind them and pulled them over for no reason. Didnt even offer miranda rights if i had to guess

    They were most likely racial profiling. Glad to see cops there havent changed! They wont arrest rich white ppl with cocaine/pot but they will with ppl of color. Talk about still living in the past!
