I was at lbb on the west side of the airport. I received the following clearance: 'small aircraft X taxi runway 8.' I taxied to the runway and crossed runway 17R. There was an MTR on short final. When I crossed the runway, the opposite traffic was of no factor. I stopped short of the hash marks on runway 8. The ground controller radioed that he had to file a pilot deviation for crossing runway 17R. I was unfamiliar with the lubbock, tx, airport and did not know that the threshold is displaced west of runway 17R. The ground controller did not give me instructions to hold short of runway 17R so I crossed it. The FAA representative said that there had been trouble with this runway previously and that similar problems or incidents have occurred. He suggested that I submit this report explaining the incident.
