Police arrested a 31-year-old Greenville man on a controlled substance charge, following a Hillcrest Drive crash Wednesday afternoon, according to arrest reports.
At 2:32 p.m. April 21, Sulphur Springs Police were dispatched to a crash reported in the 100 block of South Hillcrest Drive. Upon arrival, officers contacted Keegan Thomas Rees, who “seemed to be under the influence” of some type of intoxicant, SSPD Sgt. Brandon Mayes and Lt. Pat Leber alleged in arrest reports.
During a pat down, officers located a glass pipe of the kind used to smoke methamphetamine on the 31-year-old Greenville man.
A search revealed two baggies with a substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine in the Chevrolet Tahoe. Consequently, Rees was transported to the hospital to be checked for any injuries he may have sustained in the Hillcrest Drive crash. After being medically cleared, he was released into police custody at 4:15 p.m. April 21.
Reese was then transported to Hopkins County jail, where he was booked on a possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge. The Greenville man remained in the county jail late Thursday, April 22. Bond on the felony controlled substance charge was set at $30,000.
