Sulphur Springs police arrested a 47-year-old Commerce man alleged to have been in possession of 7.3 grams of methamphetamine Wednesday night.
SSPD Officer Zach Brown reportedly stopped a GMC Sierra 1500 on Bill Bradford Road at 7:45 p.m. Oct. 23 for a traffic violation. The driver, identified in arrest reports as Bradley Sean Ogles, was alleged to be extremely nervous and shaking while talking with Brown, and admitted he was on parole, Brown alleged in arrest reports.
Ogles reportedly agreed to let Brown search his truck. When asked to step out of his truck, Brown noted the man reach into his pants pocket. When asked, he refused to let the officer search it, so Brown called for the on-duty police canine to be brought to the scene, the officers noted in arrest reports.
While waiting for the canine, Ogles allegedly admitted to Brown he had contraband in his pocket. The officer checked the pocket, finding a substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine. Consequently, the man was taken into custody. The substance weighed 7.3 grams, according to police reports.
Ogles remained in Hopkins County jail Thursday morning, Oct. 24, on the possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge. His bond was set at $30,000 on the charge, according to jail reports.
Wednesday was not the first time Ogles has been arrested for controlled substance possession. He was jailed Oct. 26, 1997 for possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of Penalty Group 1 controlled substance; on Feb. 12, 2006, on a warrant for possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, according to jail reports.
Ogles was assessed a commitment in a substance abuse felony punishment facility in 2009 for violating probation on a possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. Ogles was assessed 10 years in prison for a possession of controlled substance charge in September 2010, jail reports note.
He was jailed on Sept. 14, 2013 on a Collin County possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge, according to jail reports.
