Brown County felon indicted for firearms, drugs
BROWN COUNTY, Texas - A convicted felon who Brown County deputies say had guns, ammo, body armor and an underground meth lab at his home was indicted on four charges Friday.
According to court records, 34-year-old Lynn Isbell was indicted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, unlawful possession of body armor by a felon, and possession of a controlled substance by a Brown County grand jury.
Isbell was arrested in December 2015 after a repo man said he had a gun pointed at him when he tried to repossess Isbell's car, according to a police report.
Deputies said they searched Isbell's home and found the gun allegedly used to threaten the repo man, along with 11 rifles, another handgun, body armor, and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
Methamphetamine residue and drug paraphernalia was found in the living room by deputies, the report stated. A further search led to the discovery of a meth lab in an underground shelter.
He was originally charged with 13 counts of unlawful possession of a firearm for the individual guns. KTXS has reached out to the Brown County District Attorney's Office for more information relating to those charges.
According to jail records, Isbell remains free on bonds totaling $317,000.
