Authorities arrest suspected East Texas drug dealer

Chandler, Texas (KETK) - A suspected East Texas drug dealer is behind bars after being arrested riding his bicycle on the wrong side of the road over the weekend.

According to Henderson County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse, on Saturday, Andrew Allen Page, 36, of Chandler, was stopped by Deputy Jacob Sumrall while riding his bicycle southbound on Sunrise Drive in the Sunrise Shores subdivision, just south of Chandler.

Sheriff Hillhouse says Page in possession of a substantial amount of methamphetamine and several clear plastic baggies, commonly used to distribute illegal drugs.

“Our deputies are constantly on the look-out for anything out of the ordinary,” Hillhouse said. “This suspect was going the wrong way, acting nervous and had trouble communicating with the deputy. Thanks to the diligence of our team, one more dealer is off the streets.”

Sheriff Hillhouse says Page was carrying more than five grams of meth.

“This is part of our concerted campaign against drugs in Henderson County,” the Sheriff said. “Hopefully, this arrest takes us to an even bigger supplier in the criminal drug chain that we are systematically breaking here.”

Page was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. He is currently in the Henderson County Jail on $30,000 bond.
