A State Highway 11 traffic stop resulted in the location of contraband and 2 arrests, according to arrest reports.

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputies Elijah Fite and Drew Fisher reported stopping a Honda Accord just after 1 a.m. Saturday, May 15, 2021, on SH 11 west at County Road 4824 for a traffic violation. Upon contact with the occupants, passenger Alyssa Renee Legendre allegedly admitted there was a marijuana cigarette in the car.

Deputies had the 23-year-old Lewisville woman and the driver, identified in arrest reports as 42-year-old John William Legendre Jr. of Yantis, step out of the vehicle. Proving her statement true, deputies found a marijuana cigarette as well as other drug paraphernalia, and a broken glass pipe of the kind commonly used to smoke methamphetamine in the car. A crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine was found amid debris from a broken glass pipe in a Taco Bell food bag on the passenger side floorboard and broken glass in the driver’s side floorboard. The substance field-tested positive for meth and when scooped up weighed 0.25 grams, Fite and Fisher alleged in arrest reports.

Both John William Legendre and Alyssa Renee Legendre were arrested for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. Both were released from jail later Friday, May 15, 2021, on a $5,000 bond set on the controlled substance charge., according to jail reports.
