Woody Claver Hurst of Robertson County has been charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance greater than 1 gram, but less than 4 grams, a 2nd degree felony. Hurst is currently in Milam County Jail and with a hold from Robertson County on these charges.
Robertson County Judge Jan Roe, the Robertson County Constables Office along with Siegert organized the undercover sting operation taking advantage of a newly hired deputy constable and the opportunity to introduce that officer to the drug community before announcing his arrival to the citizens of Robertson County. The effort has paid off.
“We will not tolerate drugs on the streets and homes of Robertson County, not in Hearne, Calvert, Franklin or Bremond, not anywhere,” said Siegert, “Meth is a scourge across this country, not just in Robertson County. This stuff is a highly addictive poison that not only destroys those who become addicted making them victims, it also makes victims out of their families and the entire community.”
