A 42-year-old Sulphur Springs woman was not only served with an eviction notice but taken to jail on a misdemeanor theft warrant Wednesday evening.
Precinct 2 Constable Bill Allan, accompanied by Hopkins County Sheriff’s Cpl. Todd Evans and Deputy Chris Baumann, went to a Helm Lane apartment to serve the female resident with eviction papers. He was also informed the woman was wanted for theft of service.
Allan reported talking to Evans earlier in the day; Evans “agreed to meet me at the residence at 5:15 due to reported threats received by apartment management,” Allan alleged in arrest reports.
Upon arrival, they went to the woman’s door, where the officers served the eviction notice and warrant. She was jailed on the warrant; the offense was alleged to have occurred on Feb. 21, according to arrest reports.
The 42-year-old woman remained in the county jail Thursday morning, June 27, on the misdemeanor charge. Bond was set at $2,000 on the theft of service valued at $750 or more but less than $2,500 charge, according to jail reports.
