Traffic stop yields felony drug arrest

February 13, 2013

During a traffic stop made by a Hood County Sheriff’s Office deputy, a 24-year-old Hood County resident was arrested and charged with a second-degree felony drug count after methamphetamine was found, Lieutentant Johnny Rose said.

Danisha Jane Olthoff, of the 4200 block of Blue Lake Court in the Stroud Creek Estates subdivision northwest of Granbury, was pulled over at about 5:30 p.m. at the intersection of West Oak Trail Drive and Valley Ridge Drive.

“During the stop, approximately 3 grams of meth was discovered,” Rose stated.

Olthoff’s charge is manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 1, more than 1 gram/less than 4 grams ($15,000 bond). She also was charged with a Class B misdemeanor for driving with an invalid license ($1,000 bond).

She was released from the Hood County Jail late that night after posting bond, Rose added.


A 19-year-old Hood County man turned himself in at the Hood County Jail at about 7 a.m. on Jan. 7 after he was charged with a state jail felony count of burglary of a building – accused of stealing a sports drink, Rose said.

A warrant had been issued for Jeffery Allen Beckler, of the 5100 block of Wedgefield Road in the Pecan Plantation subdivision southeast of Granbury, after he “allegedly entered a building without the owner’s consent and removed a sports drink,” Rose said.

Rose indicated it’s somewhat unusual to have a felony in such a case where an item with a relatively minor value is taken, but it does happen “from time to time,” he said. “With most break-ins, they steal something of value.”

Entering illegally and stealing anything results in serious consequences nonetheless.

“When you break into a building or a home without consent, it becomes a felony,” Rose stated.

The building was in the 9100 block of Plantation Drive, Rose noted. Beckler was released from the Hood County Jail later that night after posting $5,000 bond.
