Two traffic stops resulted in two controlled substance arrests in Sulphur Springs over the Independence Day weekend.
Industrial Drive Traffic Stop
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputies Nick Marney and Aaron Chaney reported stopping a black Volkswagen at 1:44 a.m. July 4, 2020 on Industrial Drive near Interstate 30 mile marker 126 for a defective tail light. The driver, a 38-year-old Sulphur Springs man was taken into custody for the defective tail light violation, according to arrest reports.
Deputies alleged the passenger, identified as 45-year-old Carlotta Fiona Davis of Sulphur Springs, appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and did admit to it, resulting in her being taken into custody for public intoxication.
She was transported to the county jail, where she was found to be in possession of a crystal-like substance deputies suspected to be methamphetamine, Marney alleged in arrest reports. As a result, Davis was also charged with possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, according to jail reports.
Davis (who is also known as Carlotta Fiona Noyes, Carlotta Davis Noyes, Carlotta Fiene Noyes and Carlotta Fiona Noyes Davis) was released from Hopkins County jail later July 4 on a $2,000 bond on the controlled substance charge, according to jail reports. The 38-year-old Sulphur Springs man was also released from Hopkins County jail July 4, jail records show.
Interstate 30 Traffic Stop
HCSO Deputy Jason Lavender reported stopping a silver BMW just before 5 p.m. July 5 for traveling in the left lane on Interstate 30 east without passing other vehicles. The car stopped near mile marker 122.
Both occupants were identified by Texas ID card. A search of the car allegedly revealed a large shard of a white crystal-like substance in a foil wrapper in the passenger’s seat. Both the male and female were placed into handcuffs and detained pending further investigation of suspected controlled substance possession, according to arrest reports.
The woman, identified in arrest reports as 35-year-old Amanda Raedene Heath of Fort Worth, claimed the suspected methamphetamine, claimed the substance and jailed for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, according to jail reports.
