ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - The Angelina County Sheriff's Office arrested a couple on Wednesday after an operation involving a deputy posing as a FedEx employee.

Torrence Kenyonne Haley, 33, of Hudson, and Jessica Simone Jamison, 24, of Diboll, are each charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance. The sheriff's office is also looking into filing child endangerment charges and federal trafficking charges may also be pending.

According to a report from Inv. Tom Matthews, the Nacogdoches Sheriff's Office contacted Angelina County authorities on Wednesday about a package at the Nacogdoches FedEx branch which contained marijuana. The package had been flagged at the business and FedEx management contacted authorities.

Matthews went undercover as a FedEx delivery person and delivered the package, which came from Oakland, Calif., to the residence, located in the 100 block of Stone Drive in Hudson, around 11 a.m. Jamison answered the door and gave a false name, which matched the name on the package, according to the report. Matthews then detained her for possession of marijuana.

Jamison told Matthews that her boyfriend told her, "a package was coming today to go ahead and sign for it," according to the report.

Deputies executed a search warrant of the home and discovered 37 grams of pscilocybin, commonly referred to as mushrooms, on the night stand next to the bed, as well as a small amount of marijuana, according to the report.

Deputies also discovered several other boxes that were shipped through FedEx, which had marijuana residue, according to the report.

Jamison had two children, both under the age of 7, at the residence, who could easily reach the drugs on the nightstand, according to the report.

Deputies contacted Child Protective Services, who turned the children over to the custody of a family member.

Haley later arrived at the residence and was placed under arrest.

Both are being held at the Angelina County Jail without bond.

Lt. Pete Cooper explained that FedEx has a division in the business which checks packages without opening them for illegal materials.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer.
