Michael Wayne Roberts, 66, of Winnsboro was in the Dollar General on Main Street when someone thought him a suspicious person. The sheriff’s deputy arrived and located Roberts at the rear of his vehicle. A pat down search led to the discovery of an eyeglass container that contained a syringe and a clear plastic baggie with a white crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine.
Roberts is in Hopkins County Jail for Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 under 1-gram and on a Wood County warrant for Injury Child/Elderly/Disable with Intent. He is held on $65,000 bond.
