Felony drug bust snares two from Colmesneil

Tyler County Booster

Narcotics training paid off quickly for Tyler County Sheriff’s department Sgt. Jeff Mashaw, when just days after completing DEA Basic Narcotic training in Fort Worth, Mashaw obtained a search warrant June 28 for a home on Fowler Road in Colmesneil that led to a felony drug bust. Jessica James, age 48, of Colmesneil and her son James Aaron Brasseaux, age 31, also of Colmesneil, were arrested for possession of just under a half pound of marijuana at their home. This is a felony charge and bond was set at $15,000 each. The drug was rolled up in individual packages for sale. Other drug paraphernalia was also found in the home. After bonding out of jail, Brasseaux, a registered sex offender, was arrested again and charged with two counts of retaliation assault charges against someone he accused of turning him in to law enforcement. He was also charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and bond was set on each count at $25,000. James completed a brief stint in the Burke Center for mental issues and was then arrested again for two counts of retaliation assault charges and two counts of terroristic threats.
