A probable cause search of the van revealed not only marijuana, but drug paraphernalia and two vape pens, sheriff’s officer alleged in arrest reports. The 34-year-old Alba man admitted the pens contained THC oil, resulting in his arrest for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, Shaw alleged in arrest reports.

When asked to exit the car so the deputies could conduct the search, the front seat passenger allegedly admitted to having a small amount of marijuana in a pouch inside of her purse. A search of the purse did reveal a small amount of marijuana and more than one rolled marijuana cigarette in a Marlboro cigarette package and a small bag containing a crystal-like substance suspected to be methamphetamine, Shaw alleged in arrest reports. Consequently, the 45-year-old Glenn Heights woman was placed into custody at 6:23 p.m. May 26, 2020, for possession of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance.

After finding no further contraband in the vehicle, deputies transported Shannon Michelle Miller to Hopkins County jail, where the crystal-like substance field-tested positive using a test kit for methamphetamine and weighed 1.04 grams, including packaging, Steward alleged in arrest reports. Thus, Miller was booked on a possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance.

Miller remained in Hopkins County jail Saturday morning, May 30, 2020, on the felony controlled substance charge, according to jail reports.
