A complaint of counterfeit money being passed at an Industrial Drive business Wednesday night resulted in a Sulphur Springs man and woman being arrested on one misdemeanor charge each.
Sulphur Springs police conducted a search in reference to the report of a counterfeit $100. A search of the 48-year-old Sulphur Springs man allegedly revealed less than 2 ounces of marijuana in his possession. Consequently, he was arrested at 9:12 p.m. June 5 on a Class B misdemeanor possession of marijuana charge, police noted in arrest reports.
Officers contacted a 39-year-old woman identified as a person involved in the call. The woman was reportedly shouting profanity, and wouldn’t stop, even after being warned by police to cease using such language in public. Consequently, she was arrested for disorderly conduct, according to arrest reports.
The man remained in Hopkins County jail Thursday morning; his bond was set at $1,000 on the marijuana charge. The woman was released from jail Thursday morning, according to jail reports.
