California Man Arrested On I-30 In Hopkins County On A Controlled Substance Charge

Pedro Antonio Fuentes Reyes

An interstate traffic stop during lunch time Wednesday resulted in a 37-year-old Compton, California man being jailed on a controlled substance charge, according to arrest reports.

A Hyundai that was being driven too close to another vehicle on Interstate 30 was stopped near mile marker 133 at 12:30 p.m. Jan. 8, Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Britain Marlow noted in arrest reports.

Officials contacted 37-year-old Pedro Antonio Fuentes Reyes of Compton, California. Reyes was reportedly transported by ambulance to the hospital for “an asthma episode,” according to arrest reports. His backpack was reportedly checked for weapons prior to him being placed into the ambulance, according to arrest reports. Inside the backpack officials found a small, clear baggy containing suspected methamphetamine, Marlow alleged in arrest reports.

After being medically evaluated at the hospital and released, Reyes was taken into custody and transported to Hopkins County jail for possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. The suspected meth, when weighed, was reported to be 1.5 grams, the trooper noted in arrest reports.

Reyes was released from the county jail Jan. 9. His bond was set at $10,000 on the felony controlled substance charge, according to jail reports.
