False Report Leads to Arrest

His girlfriend only told the dispatcher what he told her to tell, that was the final response before arrest of a man in a home on Petty Road just after 11 p.m. Thursday. Three Hopkins County Sheriff’s deputies and a DPS Trooper responded to a report of an armed man trying to break into the Petty Road home Thursday night.  When lawmen arrived (three Sheriff’s deputies and a DPS trooper), stories they were hearing sounded fishy.  Finally a man admitted the alleged robbery was narcotics related. The 21-year old Sulphur Springs man was charged with making a false report and with possession of drug paraphernalia. Both charges are misdemeanors.
