TYLER, Texas (KETK) – A Tyler man was arrested on Friday, August 16 following a lengthy narcotics investigation by the Smith County Sheriff’s Office, according to Deputy Larry Christian.

In the front yard was a 2006 Ford F-250, a 2006 Kawasaki Motorcycle, and a power generator, all of which were reported stolen. They also found black tar heroin, crystal meth, and nearly $5,000 in cash inside his home.
