Sulphur Springs Police Officer Justin Findley arrested Jair Ugalde Sanchez, 40, of Sulphur Springs Wednesday evening for driving while license invalid and possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance.
Findley reported stopping a GMC Sonoma at 8:09 p.m. July 3 for failure to signal a turn 100 feet prior to turning on College Street at Jackson Street. The driver, identified in arrest reports as Sanchez, was taken into custody after it was found he was driving without a valid license.
During an inventory of the vehicle, a glass pipe of the type commonly used to smoke methamphetamine and a plastic bag with less than 1 gram of a crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine were allegedly found. Consequently, Sanchez was also charged with controlled substance possession, according to arrest reports.
Sanchez was released from jail July 4 on $5,000 bond on the controlled substance charge; the fee for the driver’s license charge was set at $266, according to jail reports.
