David Glen Self

A 38-year-old Longview man sought for a parole warrant was located at a Sulphur Springs hotel, where controlled substances were allegedly found, according to arrest reports.

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputy Chris Baumannn and Cpl. Todd Evans, after finding David Glen Self at 6 p.m. at the South Broadway Street motel, placed him into custody on the violation of parole warrant.

The deputies then obtained from the female staying in the room permission to search it for narcotics. Multiple clear plastic bags containing suspected methamphetamine, mirrors with what was believed to be meth residue on them, THC oil vials with a cigarette and other drug paraphernalia were found in the room, deputies alleged in arrest reports.

Self allegedly claimed all of the contraband found as his. The substances were seized and Self was transported to jail.

The suspected methamphetamine allegedly weighed 4.28 grams, resulting in Self being charged with possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. The THC vials weighed 21.69 grams, resulting in an additional charge of possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 2 controlled substance, deputies noted in arrest reports.
