A man found sleeping in a Dodge 2500 pickup parked in front of a Sulphur Springs residence at 7 a.m. Wednesday ended up in jail on a controlled substance charge, Sulphur Springs Police Officer Adrian Pruitt alleged in arrest reports.
Pruitt reported the man to appear extremely nervous when contacted on W.A. Street at Beckham Street, which was not his residence. The man, identified in arrest reports as 26-year-old Martin Lee Contreras of Sulphur Springs, allegedly admitted to having a small bag of marijuana in his front pocket.
As Pruitt continued to investigate, Contreras allegedly admitted there was suspected methamphetamine in the truck and a bag with a crystal-like substance suspected to be methamphetamine was retrieved. A search yielded another bag with suspected methamphetamine, Pruitt alleged in arrest reports.
Consequently, Contreras was arrested for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. A drug-free zone enhancement was added due to the man’s proximity to Pacific Park when found in possession of the alleged controlled substance, making the charge a third-degree felony, according to arrest reports.

Contreras remained in the county jail Thursday morning. His bond was set at $10,000 on the controlled substance charge, according to jail reports.
