Sour Lake man found passed out at Lumberton business with methamphetamines

October 17, 2018



At 1:05 am on October 13, 2018, officer Kenneth Aydelotte noticed a suspicious vehicle in the Clevco parking lot at highway 69 and West Walton. Officer Aydelotte approached the Chevrolet pickup truck to find Scotty Wayne Parsons, 39, of Sour Lake, Texas asleep in the vehicle. After knocking repeatedly on the window, Parsons awoke and appeared intoxicated. Upon further questioning, Parsons stated that he believed he was in Sour Lake. Since Aydelotte did not witness Parsons operating the vehicle, he was arrested for public intoxication. However, when inventorying the vehicle, a loaded syringe containing methamphetamine was found. Parsons was booked into the Hardin County jail, charged with public intoxication, and possession of a controlled substance weighing less than one gram.
