Normangee's police chief has been indicted on federal charges for allegedly aiding drug traffickers.
According to investigators, Chief Jody Navarro is accused of using a law enforcement computer system to aid meth traffickers. A criminal complaint filed against the 40-year-old in May 2013 alleged Navarro ran a background check on a name supplied to him by a suspected meth dealer.
On August 27th undercover agents with the Department of Public Safety raided suspected meth dealer 25-year-old Josh Troy Thomas' home in the 200 block of Church Street. Navarro was on duty and was arrested as he pulled up to the scene. Both Thomas and Navarro were indicted last week in a Waco federal court.
