PALESTINE — Two Palestine men remained in the Anderson County Jail on Friday after being arrested for the possession of methamphetamine during a traffic stop on Dec. 21.

According to Sheriff Greg Taylor, deputy Jeff Taylor and Sgt. Brian Chason stopped a black Infinity sedan at about 11:20 a.m. at the intersection of U.S. 287 and ACR 1817 near Elkhart. Subject Shane Sullivan, 43, was driving and Ronald Honea, 44, was the lone passenger in the vehicle.

“Upon a subsequent search of the vehicle, the officers discovered 6.7 grams of methamphetamine and some hydrocodone,” the sheriff said.

Both suspects are charged with Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance-PG1, 4-200 grams (a first-degree felony) and Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance-PG3, 4-28 grams (a state jail felony).

Sullivan's bond is set at $250,000, with Honea's bond set at $150,000.

“We have had previous dealings with Sullivan before,” the sheriff said. “We believe he is a narcotics dealer and was in the area to do so.”
