A trespassing complaint resulted in location of drug paraphernalia and an arrest Thursday morning.
A Sulphur Springs policeman was dispatched to the 1700 block of South Broadway Street, where a person was reported for criminal trespassing. Upon arrival at the business, the officer made contact with a 43-year-old Emory man.
The officer, in arrest reports, noted the man to appear very nervous, that he wouldn’t make eye contact with police and was shaking. Based on the man’s actions, the officer patted the man down, feeling what to him felt like a pipe in the man’s pocket, according to police reports.
When asked what the pipe was for, the man allegedly said it was for smoking meth. The officer pulled what indeed appeared to be a small clear pipe of the kind commonly used for smoking methamphetamine from the man’s pocket, police alleged in arrest reports. Consequently, the Emory man was arrested at 9:48 a.m. for possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was jailed overnight and released Friday morning on the charge, according to jail reports.
