Investigation into several Rains County burglaries Tuesday evening resulted in the arrest of two County Road 2310 resident’s arrests, as well as the arrest of the male resident’s mother and her husband on misdemeanor charges, according to arrest reports.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s officers received a tip potentially connecting a County Road 2310 residence to multiple Rains County vehicle burglaries and went to talk to the residents. Both 20-year-old residents reportedly left the residence in a vehicle but returned and rushed inside. They were called back outside and allegedly admitted to having marijuana in the residence and vehicle. However, the residents refused to let the sheriff’s officers search the property, according to Hopkins County Sheriff’s Investigator Wade Sheets.
They sought and obtained a search warrant to allow them to search both the vehicle and residence. Inside, officers allegedly found items potentially from the Rains County burglaries as well as items suspected to have been used during the commission of the burglaries. Marijuana was also located in both the vehicle and home, according to arrest reports and Sheets.
Consequently, the 20-year-old residents were reportedly Dell’s ex-girlfriend, were arrested for possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana, according to arrest reports.
The male resident’s mother then reportedly showed up. The 40-year-old Sulphur Springs woman allegedly became argumentative with officers. She was reportedly not involved in the search and told multiple times to leave her son’s residence. She was allegedly warned more than six times to cease her behavior and leave or be arrested. She allegedly told officers to arrest her, despite her husband’s attempts to get her to back off and get in their vehicle. The 42-year-old husband was reportedly told to back off. When deputies attempted to place the 40-year-old Sulphur Springs woman into handcuffs and under arrest for interfering with public duties, she allegedly pulled away from and pushed her husband. He allegedly got between officers and the woman at woman point and was also taken into custody for interference with public duties, according to arrest reports and Sheets.
All four were transported at 8:44 p.m. to Hopkins County jail, where both 20-year-olds remained Wednesday morning in lieu of $1,000 bond each on the misdemeanor marijuana charge. The 40-year-old Sulphur Springs woman, whose birthday was Tuesday, and 42-year-old Sulphur Springs man also remained in Hopkins County jail Wednesday in lieu of $1,000 on the misdemeanor interference with public duties charge, according to jail reports.
