Two people were arrested for the second time in less than a year on one felony charge each of the last two days, according to arrest reports.
South Broadway Street Arrest
Sulphur Springs Police Sgt. Brandon Mayes and Officer Robble Acosta arrested Wesley Mills at 7:05 a.m. June 9 on South Broadway Street for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance in a drug-free zone.
The officers stopped Mills for not wearing a seat belt. On contact with the 60-year-old Bogata man, Mayes alleged the man was visibly shaking and had fast breathing.
When asked about a criminal history, Mills spoke of firearm possession but failed to mention a narcotic charge, Mayes and Acosta alleged in arrest reports. Jail reports show Mills was arrested July 12, 2019 on a possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance.
While talking to the officers further, Mills allegedly admitted to having a small amount of methamphetamine inside his pickup. After the suspected meth was located, Mills was taken into custody on the controlled substance charge, Mayes and Acosta alleged in arrest reports. Due to the stop’s proximity to a primary school, a drug-free zone enhancement was added to the charge, the officer noted in arrest reports. The truck was left parked at the location, at his request, for another male to pick up.
Mills was released from Hopkins County jail Wednesday, June 10; bond on the June 9 third-degree felony controlled substance charge was set at $10,000, according to jail reports.
