A Nacogdoches man is facing five felony charges and two misdemeanors after being arrested Thursday.

Toccara Tyvance Lockett, 37, was still jailed as of Saturday morning on the charges.

Lockett was in a vehicle pulled over by officers because “officers had prior knowledge that the passenger ... was wanted,” according to the arrest affidavit filed against him.

Lockett was initially arrested on an outstanding felony warrant, but additional charges were filed against him after a search of the vehicle turned up drugs.

Those charges promoted officers to get a warrant to search Lockett’s home, in which suspected Ecstasy was found. Marijuana, and two pistols — including one reported as stolen — were discovered as well, according to the affidavit.

“The defendant’s criminal history shows the defendant to be on parole until Feb. 21, 2020,” according to the affidavit.

Lockett faces first- and second-degree felonies for the manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, a Class-A misdemeanor for marijuana possession, a state-jail felony for theft of a firearm and a third-degree felony for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felony. He faces additional charges for the second-degree felony and Class-B misdemeanors.
