ANGELINA COUNTY, Texas (KTRE) - A Lufkin man said to be one East Texas' most prolific meth cooks was arrested again Friday morning when deputies served a warrant on his home on FM 842.

Sgt. Allen Hill said David Arthur Dunman Jr., 51, was sleeping at about 9:15 a.m. when deputies arrived and served an arrest warrant.

Hill said deputies found components of a meth lab and eight grams of finished meth.

As Dunman was being transferred to the Angelina County Jail, Hill said he collapsed, so he was taken to a Lufkin hospital for treatment.

Dunman will be charged with possession of certain chemicals with the intent to manufacture and possession of a controlled substance.

Dunman was arrested in September following a two-year investigation. At the time, he had no previous drug arrests.

Hill said Dunman posted a $101,500 bond and went back to cooking almost immediately. He had made fake identification cards to buy pseudoephedrine, Hill said, and neighbors began complaining about traffic coming into the house.

Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
