An investigation by the Sulphur Springs Special Crimes Unit officers into the suspected possession and sale of methamphetamine by a 50-year-old Sulphur Springs woman resulted in a warrant being issued for Stephanie Lynn Padron’s arrest.
The SCU officers alleged they were able to make several purchases of methamphetamine from the 50-year-old Sulphur Springs woman during their investigation.
SCU Sgt. Joe Scott and Sulphur Springs Police Officer Tyler Francis at 5:24 p.m. Monday served Padron at her apartment complex with the warrant for manufacture or delivery of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. She was jailed on the charge, according to arrest reports.
Patron’s arrest Monday marks the second time in a week Padron has been jailed on a controlled substance charge. She charged May 15 with possession with intent to distribute 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, after 8.9 grams of suspected methamphetamine was found in a vehicle she was a passenger during an interstate traffic stop, officers noted in reports last week. She was released from jail May 18 on $30,000 bond on that charge, according to jail reports.
Padron remained in the county jail at 11 a.m. Tuesday, May 21, on the warrant. Bond was set at $45,000 on the May 20 charge, according to jail reports.
