Pre-Christmas meth lab bust


All hopes for a White Christmas were recently dashed for a pair of Bandera men.

On Sunday, Dec. 23, deputies with the Bandera County Sheriff’s Office descended on the Texas Star Motel off Highway 16 South. They confiscated chemicals and equipment being used to produce methamphetamine.

Joseph Doyle, 28, and Franklin Smith, 37, were arrested and charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.

The pair was booked into the Bandera County Jail, where they remained as of press time.
