Hopkins County Sheriff’s deputies found a vehicle reported stolen abandoned at County Road 1110 and County Road 1171. It had been taken from a County Road 1112 residence. Then a man drove up and told deputies his father’s truck had been stolen from a residence at County Road 1110 and County Road 1218. The description of the truck matched one that had been found on County Road 1100 East at FM 2653. A man seen near the second abandoned vehicle was questioned and he said he had borrowed the truck. He later admitted he had stolen it. The man said he had also taken the first vehicle but it broke down on him so then he took the truck. The suspect was arrested just before 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Terrell Allen Bell III, a 28-year old Sulphur Springs man, has been charged with two counts of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and two counts of burglary of a habitation. He is being held in Hopkins County jail on bonds totaling $70,000.
