Two people were transferred to Hopkins County jail Monday on felony warrants, according to arrest reports.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Amanda Weatherford traveled to Collin County Sheriff’s Office, where Lisa Faye Abraham was held on a Hopkins County warrant. Weatherford took Abraham into custody at 1:50 p.m. April 26, 2021, and transported her to Hopkins County jail, where she was booked at 3:20 p.m. for violation of probation, which the 53-year-old Sulphur Springs woman was on for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. She was held in Hopkins County jail Tuesday, April 27, 2021 on the charge.
Weatherford also traveled to Dallas County Sheriff’s Office, where Steven Lee Welborn was held on a Hopkins County warrant. Weatherford took custody of Welborn at 5:12 p.m. Monday, April 26, 2021 and transported him to Hopkins County jail, where the 54-year-old Irving man was booked at 7 p.m. on a warrant for bond forfeiture on a possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge. He remained in Hopkins County jail Tuesday, April 27, on the charge; his new bond was set at $20,000.
The controlled substance charge stems from a June 30, 2020 Interstate 30 traffic stop in which a plastic bag containing pills suspected to be Xanax and a yellow bag containing a crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine were found lodged in the front passenger’s head rest area, glass pipes of the type used to smoke methamphetamine with suspected meth, used hypodermic syringes and a burned spoon with other drug paraphernalia were found in a zip bag located in the center console, and more syringes and another burned spoon were among the drug paraphernalia found on the back seat. Additional loose crystal-like substance believed to be meth was located on the floorboard behind driver’s seat of the SUV. The suspected meth field tested positive on a field test kit. Welborn and two women were arrested early June 30 on a third-degree felony possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge, deputies alleged in 2020 arrest reports. Welborn was released from jail the next day on a $10,000 bond.
