Tuesday morning a traffic violation stop in the 1200 block of South Hillcrest led to the arrest of Alicia Anne Blunt, 32, and Evertt Lloyd Brown, Jr., 43. During the traffic stop the pair gave consent to a search of the vehicle. In the center console of the vehicle was found a cigarette box containing two baggies of a crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine and syringes.
This is the second arrest for Blunt in less than a month for the same charge and in the same area. On December 5, 2016, at a local truck stop on Hillcrest, she was sitting in a pickup truck and moving her jaw uncontrollably with sores on her face. That attracted attention to a possible need. Local law enforcement responded. Noting a green pouch and what appeared to be a syringe in the driver’s seat, the officer sought consent to search the vehicle. She told the officer that she used the syringe to shoot up methamphetamine. In his search he found two syringes in the green pouch along with a clear baggie of crystal like substance believed to be methamphetamine.
Blunt of Wolfe City was arrested at that time and placed in Hopkins County Jail charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 less than 1-gram.
