Failure to stop at a designated stopping point created cause for a traffic stop by a Hopkins County Deputy at Connally and League Streets in Sulphur Springs. During the stop, the driver, Colton Heath Golightly, 29, of Arthur City, Texas, appeared nervous. Both driver and passenger, Jessica Nicole Allen, 30, of Paris, were found in possession of methamphetamine.
Due to Golightly being nervous, the deputy conducted a pat down for officer safety. Golightly consented to a search of his pockets where a digital scale with a crystal like substance believed to be methamphetamine was found. A probable cause search of the vehicle produced a needle commonly used to inject meth. The needle was in a tan purse belonging to Allen. Both were arrested and taken to Hopkins County Jail. At the jail, Allen told the deputy she was in possession of two needles and some “stuff” later found to be methamphetamine.
Golightly is in Hopkins County Jail charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 more than 4-grams but less than 200-grams and with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He is held on a $20,000 bond.
Allen is in Hopkins County Jail charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 more than 4-grams but less than 200-grams and with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. She is held on a $20,000 bond.
