Hopkins County Sheriff’s Investigator Wade Sheets noticed a 2015 Chevrolet Malibu backed up to a gate on County Road 4703 and saw two individuals in the vehicle. Upon making contact with the passengers, he saw a loaded glass pipe in the passengers lap and the driver was shaking a butane bottle. The glass pipe contained methamphetamine.
In a search of the driver’s pockets, the investigator found a blue colored baggie with a small amount of crystal like substance inside. After searching the driver, a second small baggie containing a small amount of the substance was found on the ground. Inside the passengers purse was another glass pipe commonly used to smoke meth.
Arrested and transported to Hopkins County Jail were Jerry Wilkerson, Jr., 39, of Sulphur Springs and
Ashley Renea Young, 22, of Sulphur Springs.
