Two women were arrested on controlled substance charges after Xanax and methamphetamine were found in the motel room with them and one woman’s young children. Child Protective Services personnel were contacted to take custody of the kids, deputies alleged in arrest reports.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office deputies were made aware 38-year-old Natalie Latrese Alzidi of Dallas, a wanted woman, could be found at the motel. Deputies went to the 1400 block of East Industrial Drive, contacted the woman and took her into custody at 6:34 a.m. April 19, 2021, on the Henderson County manufacture or delivery of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance warrant, Sgt. Tanner Steward and Deputy Zack Horne noted in arrest reports.
After obtaining consent, deputies searched the motel room. The sheriff’s officers found multiple items, including a coin purse which the woman’s roommate, 45-year-old Sulphur Springs woman, claimed as hers; it contained the Sulphur Springs woman’s ID, a single loos pill identified by the numbers and letter on it as Alprazolam, which is best known by the trade name Xanax.
