Hopkins County sheriff’s deputies arrested 38-year-old Desiree Delyn Pharis of Sulphur Springs, after allegedly finding a THC oil vaporizer and a firearm in her truck during a traffic stop.
Deputy Aaron Chaney reported stopping Pharis at 9:10 a.m. Feb. 4 on County Road 4703 because the truck she was in didn’t have a front license plate. Chaney alleged her leg began shaking erratically while holding down the brake pedal and she was having trouble locating her driver’s license, so he asked her to step out of the vehicle.
As she did, Chaney alleged in arrest reports, Pharis made furtive movements, as if trying to conceal an object. She held a vaporizer pen with what the officer suspected to be a THC oil cartridge in her hand, Chaney alleged in arrest reports. Chaney placed her into custody. She allegedly admitted the object was a THC oil vaporizer. The deputy reported finding a pistol under the console during a probable cause search.
Pharis was taken to jail for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 2 controlled substance and unlawful carrying of a weapon, according to arrest reports.
Pharis remained in Hopkins County jail Wednesday morning, Feb. 5. Bond was set at $5,000 on the controlled substance charge and $2,000 on the weapon charge, according to jail reports.
