Jackson Street Traffic Stop
Sulphur Springs Police Officer Sean Hoffman conducted a traffic stop on a Nissan Altima at 1:09 p.m. April 20, 2021, in the 100 block of North Jackson Street. When the passenger was asked for his name and date of birth, the 57-year-old Sulphur Springs man identified himself as Mike Jones and gave the officer a date that was found to be his true day and month of birth but a year that would make him one year younger than he actually is.
Dispatchers advised no record was found for that individual when they conducted a computer records check. So, the officer again reportedly asked the man to be honest about his name. Hoffman then noticed the man had begun sweating; he did have a jacket on but it was a cool day outside. The man then admitted he was in fact Eddie Charles Evans, and knew he was wanted because he didn’t report to his parole officer as required.
After confirming the warrant, Evans was taken into custody on the violation of parole warrant. He was held in Hopkins County jail Wednesday morning, April 21, for Austin Parole Division.
