Acting on an anonymous tip, police apprehended a man wanted on multiple drug and drug-related charges. Ronnie Lane, 50, was indicted in December for possession of controlled substance in the first degree-second offense, firearm enhanced, possession of firearm by convicted felon, possession of drug paraphernalia, firearm enhanced, and persistent felony offender in the first degree. Lane was out on bail and has been on the run until Wednesday night.
Led by Deputy Jordan Jones, police found Lane hidden in the attic at a house located at 1094 Noah Bledsoe Road. Lane surrendered without incident and was found with various prescription medications and a syringe loaded with what appeared to be meth. In addition to the previous charges, Lane was also charged with possession of meth, possession of controlled substance (codeine), and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jones was assisted by Sheriff Shane Doyle, and Brownsville PD Officers Garth Avery and Nathan Dennis. Lane was lodged in the Hart County Jail.
