When Kyle Dayne Belz, 23, of Sulphur Springs told the Hopkins County Deputy that his vehicle broke down at the 7-Star parking lot and that he was walking southbound on Highway 19 to get to Birthright, the deputy told Belz that he was walking in the wrong direction.
The deputy knows Belz and asked if he had anything on his person that was illegal. Belz became nervous and began emptying his pockets without direction to do so. A small plastic straw-like tube containing a white crystal like substance believed to be methamphetamine was observed falling from his pocket onto the ground. When asked what it was, Belz replied, “dope”.
Belz is in Hopkins County Jail charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 less than 1-gram, a state jail felony.
