Two Sulphur Springs residents were transported Friday from other jails to Hopkins County jail, where each was held on at least one felony warrant.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Transport Deputy Jason Poteet traveled to Weatherford, where 27-year-old Shawn Andrew March of Sulphur Springs was being held at Parker County Sheriff’s Office. He took March into custody at 12:30 p.m. Friday on Hopkins County warrants for bond forfeiture possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, and for bail jumping and failure to appear.
The officer then transported both men to Hopkins County jail, where they were booked on the charges just after 3:30 p.m. July 5.
Poteet then traveled to Hutchins State Jail in Dallas, where he took 58-year-old James Curtis Sims Jr. of Sulphur Springs into custody at 1:50 p.m. on a Hopkins County warrant for theft of property valued at less than $2,500, with two or more previous convictions, which enhanced the charge to a felony offense, according to jail reports.
March remained in Hopkins County jail Saturday morning. Bond was set at $10,000 on the controlled substance charge and $25,000 on the bail jumping charge; he also was charged on an outstanding city warrant for expired operator’s license, according to jail reports.
Sims was held on the violation of probation charge, according to jail reports.
