Man Charged With Evidence Tampering For Allegedly Trying To Hide Pipe

Camron Michael Hamil

A traffic stop Friday afternoon resulted in a man’s arrest on misdemeanor charges, but trying to hide a methamphetamine pipe under a patrol vehicle resulted in a felony charge, according to police reports.

Sulphur Springs Police Officer Adrian Pruitt reported conducting a traffic stop on a Dodge Magnum at 1:26 p.m. April 19 on Sunset Street at Houston Street. While talking with the driver, identified in reports as 28-year-old Camron Michael Hamil, Pruitt reported Hamil to be “extremely nervous” so the officer attempted a pat down. However, the man refused to let Pruitt search his pockets, the officer alleged in arrest reports.

Pruitt requested a records check. Communications operators reported the man did not have a valid driver’s license, and the officer was unable to confirm a valid insurance on the car, which displayed an expired registration sticker. He also couldn’t contact the owners for vehicle information, according to arrest reports. The man was placed into custody for no driver’s license, expired registration, failure to maintain financial responsibility, no seat belt.

As Pruitt was putting the into the patrol vehicle, he reported finding a pipe of the kind commonly used to smoke methamphetamine. The officer believed the man was trying to discard it under the patrol vehicle, resulting in the felony charge of tampering with physical evidence, Pruitt alleged in arrest reports.
