Approximately 0.4 gram of a crystal-like crystal-like substance that tested positive for methamphetamine using a scientific substance analyzer device was found in the console, police alleged in reports.
All three occupants, denied knowledge or possession of the substance.

Wildcat Way Traffic Stop
Sulphur Springs Police Officer Sean Hoffman conducted a traffic stop on a Ford Fusion on Wildcat Way at Arbala Road around 8:20 a.m. Saturday, April 10, 2021. While talking with the driver, Hoffman noted the 38-year-old woman’s hands shook excessively. She was asked to exit the car to talk with him away from her husband. When asked about the shakiness, Stephanie Ann Glenn reportedly started breathing heavily and couldn’t stand still, which she claimed was due to a medical condition, Hoffman alleged in arrest reports.
The woman initially agreed to let Hoffman search the car, then retracted and said she would have to ask her husband and quickly returned to the car and began reaching for something, Hoffman alleged in arrest reports. The police officer instructed the husband to get out, then asked the Wichita, Kansas woman to be honest about the car’s contents, noting he could see her nervousness escalating as a vehicle search was discussed.
Glenn allegedly admitted there was methamphetamine and a pipe used to smoke it in the car either in the console or under the driver’s seat. A search revealed a case with suspected methamphetamine, two glass pipes, a rag and container with meth residue in it in the console. However, the woman initially claimed someone she’d given a ride to the day before had left the contraband in the car, but when asked who it really belonged to, she claimed it as hers, Hoffman alleged in arrest reports.
Hoffman arrested Glenn just before 9 a.m. April 10 and taken to jail on a possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance; the car was released to her husband. She was released from Hopkins County jail Sunday, April 11, 2021, on a $10,000 bond on the third-degree felony charge, according to arrest and jail reports.
