Wichita County Republican Party Treasurer Gains Additional Charge

Jonathan Paul Lyne has an added charge of Tampering With or Fabricating Physical Evidence. 

According to the arrest affidavit, Lyne's cell phone was seized as evidence, due to text messages involving the sale of illegal drugs. However, police say that on March 12th, Lyne's phone was in the evidence room, but the contacts, text messages and photographs had been cleared remotely and erased. 

Authorities believe Lyne remotely erased all the incriminating information from his cell phone.  

Wichita Falls Police say the investigation into 23-year-old Jonathan Paul Lyne began on March 10th, when the Wichita County District Attorney's Drug Enforcement Division executed a search warrant for an iPhone 4 for evidence. 

The arrest affidavit stated that on March 11th, detectives noticed a text message and an attached photograph involving about nine grams of hash oil and how much it would cost.

Police say that Lyne admitted to sending the text message and consented to a thorough search of his texting history and his home. 

Investigators say they found hash, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia, and because his home is near Cunningham Elementary School, police say that it is a drug free zone. 

Lyne was initially charged with Manufacture/Delivery Of A Substance Over 1 Gram/Under 4 Grams In A Drug Free Zone.
