Local Trooper Makes Sizeable Drug Bust, SEVEN OAKS, December 3, 2012 - At 8:30 pm on November 30, 2012, Trooper Chad Seamans with the Texas Highway Patrol was on patrol in the area of Seven Oaks when he spotted a vehicle that was weaving in and out of traffic and passing other vehicles on the shoulder. Seamans stopped the north-bound car in Seven Oaks. The driver Albert Achilles Hodge, 36, of Lufkin was placed under arrest by Trooper Seamans for driving with a revoked driver's license. Following proper protocol, when a vehicle is to be towed, an inventory must be taken of the vehicle's contents to protect the vehicle owner's property. When Seamans began to inventory the vehicle, he uncovered 11 lbs. of marijuana and 122 grams of cocaine. Hodge was transported to Polk County Jail and charged with possession of marijuana and manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance. The vehicle was recovered by Ken's Towing and was stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
