Orange County deputies find cocaine, prescription meds in vehicle

ORANGE COUNTY - from Orange County Sheriff's Office

On Thursday, August 21, 2014, around 12:15 a.m., an Orange County Sheriff's Deputy conducted a traffic stop on a 2010 Chrysler four door passenger vehicle on IH-10 Eastbound at the 865 mile marker for following too close, in violation of Texas Transportation Code 545.062.

When the Deputy spoke to the driver, he noticed the driver was overly nervous.  The Deputy became suspicious after questioning the driver and a passenger, which led to the Deputy asking the driver for consent to search his vehicle.  The driver consented to the search and the Deputy located approximately 400 grams of cocaine wrapped in duct tape and plastic, hidden in the trunk. 

The driver was identified as 29 year old black male Tyronne Gillin and the passenger was identified as 23 year old black female Erica Patin, both of New Orleans, Louisiana.  Gillin and Patin were placed under arrest of Possession of a Controlled Substance, a 1st Degree Felony, and booked into the Orange County Jail.  During the book-in process, it was discovered that Patin had 67 illegally possessed prescription pills identified as Tramadol, hidden in clear plastic packaging under her clothing.  Patin faced an additional charge of a Class B misdemeanor for Possession of a Controlled Substance.

Justice of the Peace Precinct #1, Judge David Peck, arraigned Gillin and set his bond at $50,000.  Patin's bond was set at $51,000.  Both Gillin and Patin remain in custody at the Orange County Jail.
