A suspicious person complaint Wednesday morning lead police to a Sulphur Springs man who allegedly had methamphetamine and pills in his pockets, marking the second time the man has been arrested on a controlled substance charge in less than a week, according to arrest and jail reports.
Sulphur Springs Police Officer Adrian Pruitt reported finding what appeared to be a man sleeping in a red Audi upon arrival at 7:10 a.m. in the 1200 block of South Hillcrest Drive, where a suspicious person had been reported. Pruitt woke the man up and, while talking to him, patted him down; a crystal-like substance the officer believed to be methamphetamine was found in a piece of a Latex glove and several pills were found in a plastic bag in his pockets, Pruitt alleged in arrest reports.
Consequently, 32-year-old Sean Lee Cain was arrested for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance and taken to jail; the car was impounded and towed from the location. Cain remained in the county jail Thursday morning on the charge, according to jail reports.
Wednesday marks the second time Cain has been booked into the county jail in the last week. He was first arrested on Friday, July 26, for unlawful carrying of a weapon and possession of less than 28 grams of a Penalty Group 3 controlled substance. He was released from jail on $2,000 each for both charges on July 27, according to jail reports.
