Texas DPS Officer Arrested in Drug Investigation

CLEBURNE, Texas (AP) - An off-duty Texas Department of Public Safety officer has been charged with possessing methamphetamine.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday announced the arrest of Jimmy Jay Gillman of Cleburne on a charge of possession of a controlled substance.

Lt. Tim Jones says Gillman was arrested Tuesday night after being under surveillance and observed taking possession of meth. The 47-year-old Gillman was arrested while in the front yard of his residence. Gillman's girlfriend was in the home but released after the property was searched.

Sheriff's officials had no details on an attorney for Gillman, whose bond was set at $100,000.

A spokesman for Texas DPS, which was involved in the investigation, did not immediately provide information on Gillman or his job status.

Cleburne is 25 miles south of Fort Worth.
