Staff Writer

On Wednesday, October 25, 2017, a Nolan County deputy stopped a black Chevrolet truck in the 1200 block of Lubbock Street, for a minor traffic infraction. Contact was then made with the driver, Anthony “Tony” Brown, of Sweetwater who was accompanied by Christopher Bryant, and Matthew McQueen, also of Sweetwater.
During a roadside investigation, the deputy detected indicators of criminal activity which led to a request for assistance, where officers of the Sweetwater Police Department arrived, and a K9 was subsequently deployed. A probable cause search of the vehicle was then conducted, that led to the discovery of firearms, suspected methamphetamine and heroin.
The three men were placed under arrest and transported to the Nolan County jail where they were charged with the felony offense of manufacture/delivery controlled substance; weapons charges were also filed.
