Man pleads guilty to synthetic marijuana drug trafficking violations
JEFFERSON COUNTY - A Jefferson County man is preparing to start his five-year sentence in federal prison.

Michael Willams pleaded guilty on July 9, 2014, to drug trafficking violations.

According to court documents, Williams conspired to receive synthetic marijuana from dealers in Syracuse, New York to distribute in Port Arthur.

Beaumont sinkhole has been repaired
BEAUMONT - The massive sinkhole in Beaumont we told you about yesterday (Tuesday) is now fixed, but the intersection of Royal Street and Range Street are closed until further notice to make finshing touches.

The sinkhole opened up Tuesday morning.

The water utilities director says a sewage pipe broke and the dirt between the street and the pipe went into the broken pipe and was flushed down the sewer line.

That left no dirt supporting the street, and it collapsed.

Motorists can detour the area using Avenue A, Blanchette Street, Victoria Street and Craig Street.

The street and drainage department will go out later this week or early next week to put the asphalt patch to the area.
