Sulphur Springs Traffic Stop Results in Controlled Substance Arrest

2 Others Jailed On Warrants

Sulphur Springs police arrested two women overnight Wednesday on controlled substance-related charges following traffic stops. A Carrollton man was also picked up in Dallas on a Hopkins County warrant.

Angelica Desiree Washington

Sulphur Springs Police Special Crimes Unit Sgt. Joe Scott stopped a Mitsubishi Galant at 9:18 p.m. Feb. 12 on Como Street at Jefferson Street for an expired temporary registration.

Scott reported seeing the driver, identified in arrest reports as 26-year-old Angelica Desiree Washington, reaching toward her waistband in what he consider a suspicious manner. He asked her to exit the car. She allegedly admitted to having a marijuana roach in the car and agreed to let officials search the car. Scott reported finding the marijuana roach.

A records check allegedly showed Washington did not have an eligible driver’s license due to previous driving while license invalid convictions. She was placed into handcuffs, according to arrest reports.

Scott alleged seeing a plastic bag with a white crystal-like substance he suspected to be methamphetamine near her foot. She allegedly admitted ownership of the suspected meth, resulting in an additional charge. The substance and packaging weighed 0.8 grams, Scott alleged in arrest reports.

Washington remained in Hopkins County jail Thursday morning, Feb. 13. Her bond was set at $5,000 on the possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance and $1,000 on the driver’s license charge, according to jail reports.

Around midnight, Sulphur Springs Police Officer Zachary Brown and Sgt. Joe Scott arrested a 41-year-old Farmersville woman on a Jack County warrant, according to arrest reports.

Officers allegedly stopped a Ford Escape on West Industrial Drive for an equipment violation. A records check showed occupant Traci E. Brown to be wanted in Jack County for bond forfeiture on a possession of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge. She was arrested at 12:27 a.m. Feb. 13 and jailed on the charge, according to jail reports.
