Two Dallas area women were arrested Saturday night in Sulphur Springs for misdemeanor marijuana possession.
Sulphur Springs police reported stopping a Chevrolet Cobalt around 9:30 p.m. Sept. 7 on Oak Avenue at Hinnant Street for an equipment violation. On contact with the 25-year-old DeSoto woman driving and the 25-year-old Lewisville passenger, the officer alleged he could smell a marijuana odor emitting from the car. A search of the car allegedly yielded less than 2 ounces of suspected marijuana, resulting in both women being arrested on for possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana in a drug-free zone.
The passenger also allegedly initially identified herself by name, but claimed not to have any ID on her. An ID card with a different name and photo that was identical to the woman was allegedly found in the passenger’s purse. The woman claimed the ID belonged to her twin sister, and insisted her name was the name she’d told him. When she was placed into handcuffs, however, she admitted she’d lied about her name and admitted the ID found in her purse was in fact hers, officers alleged in arrest reports. For her dishonestly, the woman was charged with the Class B misdemeanor offense of failure to identify with intent to give false information, according to arrest reports.
Both women were released from jail Sunday, Sept. 8. Bond on the marijuana charge was set at $2,000 each; the passenger’s bond on the the failure to ID charge was set at $1,000, according to jail reports.
