Kayla Renea Roth, 26, of Summer Texas was arrested Friday at 2 a.m. at the corner of Highway 19 and FM 71 by a Hopkins County Deputy. When the deputy made a traffic stop, Roth showed signs of methamphetamine use. Roth said she had been arrested in Gregg County for Possession of meth a month ago but had not used meth since that arrest. Her story is one of many who are in the stranglehold of meth.

With consent to search the vehicle, the deputy called the DPS K-9 handler. The K-9 gave a positive alert on the vehicle. A clear plastic baggie containing methamphetamine was found inside the glove box. A pipe commonly used to smoke meth was also found in the vehicle.

Roth told the officers that she was going to Rehab in Winnsboro this weekend and was out on bond from Gregg County for the other possession. She is now in Hopkins County Jail charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 >1-gram <4-grams and is being held on a $15,000 bond.
