Steward contacted the homeowner, who reportedly admitted the 36-year-old Sulphur Springs woman they sought was inside the home. The homeowner walked the sheriff’s deputies into the abode, where Steward reported seeing a woman who was later confirmed to be the wanted person walking out of a bedroom.

Carissa Ann Jenkins was taken into custody at 8:58 p.m. Oct. 27 on the tampering with or fabricating physical evidence warrant. The woman asked the homeowner to retrieve her cell phone from her bedroom. The deputy stepped into the room with the homeowner and alleged seeing a glass pipe of the kind commonly used to smoke methamphetamine within arms reach near the bed, two small baggies containing a crystal-like substance which field-tested positive for methamphetamine and a black plate with more meth. The contraband was collected as evidence and Jenkins was transported to jail.

Jenkins, in addition to the felony warrant, was also charged with possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance.

The 36-year-old Sulphur Springs woman remained in Hopkins County jail Wednesday, Oct. 28. Bond was set at $10,000 on the tampering with evidence charge and at $5,000 on the controlled substance charge.

The arrest marked the third time in less than 4 months that Jenkins was been jailed. She spent July 2-13, 2020, in the county jail on another possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge and from July 21 to Aug. 2, 2020, in jail on a warrant for violating probation, which she was on for a possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana charge. Jenkins was jailed from July 27 to July 30, 2018 in jail on a possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana charge.
