Running a stop sign was the reason for the traffic stop in the 300 block of South Davis Street but when the law enforcement officer asked the driver to step from the vehicle for a pat down, the drive admitted to having a syringe in his left pocket. That led to a probable cause search of the vehicle where the officer located a clear plastic bag with a crystal like substance believed to be methamphetamine. No one in the vehicle claimed the substance so both were taken to Hopkins County Jail on charges that are a state jail felony.
Jeremy Lynn Sharp, 40, who also had a baggy of pills in his pocket, is charged with possession of a controlled substance penalty group 1 less than 1-gram and possession of a controlled substance, penalty group 3 less than 28 grams. Chrystal Lee Hickman, 53, is charged with possession of a controlled substance, penalty group 1, less than 1-gram.
