Eduardo Austin Delgado Torres

A 20-year-old Sulphur Springs man turned himself in early Tuesday morning on five violation of probation charges, marking the second time he has been in the county jail this month.

Eduardo Austin Delgado Torres surrendered himself at Hopkins County Law Enforcement Center at 12:08 a.m. July 23 and was walked by Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Lester into the county jail, according to arrest reports.

Torres was held on five charges of violation of probation, which he was on for two possession of less than 28 grams of a Penalty Group 3 controlled substance in a drug-free zone, possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a controlled substance, possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana and manufacture or delivery of less than 28 grams of a Penalty Group 3/4 controlled substance, according to arrest and jail reports.

Tuesday marks the second time Torres has been booked into the county jail this month. He was arrested July 4 for possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 2 controlled substance and possession of less than 28 grams of a Penalty Group 3 controlled substance.

The July 4 arrest followed an interstate traffic stop by troopers, who reported smelling a marijuana odor coming from Torres’ vehicle when talking to the 20-year-old Sulphur Springs man. Torres allegedly admitted to having a marijuana joint and THC edibles in his vehicle, and later to having Xanax and hydrocodone pills in his sock. All of the items were located, resulting in Torres’ arrest on three controlled substance charges, the trooper alleged in the July 4 arrest report.

Torres was released from the county jail July 5 on $25,000 on the Penalty Group 1 charge, $10,000 on the Penalty Group 2 charge and $2,000 on the Penalty Group 3 charge, according to jail reports.

He remained in the county late Tuesday morning July 23, on the violation of probation charges, according to jail reports.
