Texas State Trooper Jimmy Gillman Caught Buying Meth in Cleburne, Police Say
A Texas state trooper was arrested in Cleburne Tuesday night after allegedly buying 6 grams of methamphetamine.
According to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, 47-year-old Jimmy Jay Gillman, an officer in the Texas Department of Public Safety's commercial vehicle enforcement unit, was picked up just after 9 p.m. in front of his Cleburne home.
Police -- some with Johnston County's "Stop the Offender Program Special Crimes Unit," some with the Burleson Police Department, some with the Texas Rangers -- were watching him there after receiving a tip about Gillman's alleged drug use.
Inside the home, officers found more drugs and drug paraphernalia. Gillman's girlfriend, a 53-year-old Arlington resident, was taken into custody but was later released.
Gillman was charged with possession of a controlled substance. A justice of the peace set his bond at $100,000.
