Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office officials were alerted that Benjamin James Cowling was in custody at the adult probation office in Sulphur Springs for violating probation on a 2019 possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge. Deputy Zack Horne responded at 11:15 a.m. Sept. 9, and transported Cowling to jail. He remained in Hopkins County jail Thursday morning, Sept. 10, 2020, on the charge.

Cowling was arrested twice in 2019 for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance.

He was among five people arrested May 20, 2019, after suspected methamphetamine, Ecstasy pills, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found during a State Highway 11 traffic stop, deputies alleged in the 2019 arrest report. Cowling was reportedly driving the car at the time of the stop.

The 20-year-old Whitewright man was also arrested on one controlled substance charge on Sept. 21, 2019.


The Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office is located at 298 Rosemont St., Sulphur Springs, TX 75482. Non-emergency calls can be made to (903) 438-4040.
