Jody Navarro, Texas police chief, busted and arrested in Meth trafficking ring

Authorities arrested a police chief from a small town in East Texas along with two residents, in connection to a methamphetamine ring.

Joseph “Jody” Navarro, 40, a police chief of Normangee, Texas was taken into federal custody after he was arrested for allegedly using a law enforcement computer system to aid in meth trafficking, the Bryan Eagle reported on Thursday.

Navarro was charged with intentionally exceeding authorized access to a protected computer to run a background check on a name supplied to him by a suspected meth dealer, Normangee resident Brenda Antanette Evans, 45.

Evans and Joshua Troy Thomas, 25, both of Normangee, were charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. The complaint alleged that Evans purchased close to an ounce of meth from Thomas for $1,200.

Thomas was arrested during an early morning raid at his home, and Navarro was cuffed by law enforcement as he pulled up to the scene while on duty, KBTX-TV reported.

The Eagle reported Evans surrendered to authorities at the McLennan County Jail in Waco on Wednesday.

“I’ve worked (with) and known Jody for about five or six years now,” Normangee Police Sgt. Steve Milligan told KBTX-TV. “Knowing Jody personally, it was quite a surprise to me.”

If convicted, Navarro faces up to five years in federal prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.

The fight against illegal drugs can really be frustrating when authorities are aiding the other side. Then again, this shouldn’t discourage people from going on the right path, particularly those who were hooked on drugs and are now trying to rid themselves of the habit. For those who live in Texas, scanning through Right Step Plano, Texas reviews and ratings would be a good start.
