Sulphur Springs Police Officer Tyler Francis responded at 1:05 p.m. June 9 an East Industrial Drive motel, where a worker expressed concerned for two women. The worker told police he tired to wake up the women, who were late on checking out, but couldn’t get them awake. Upon arrival, the officer observed two women lying on the bed next to each other. The officer tried multiple times before getting the women to wake up.

The officer located a large bag with a large amount of a clear, crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine on the bed next to one of the woman, identified in arrest reports as 33-year-old Chelsey Nicole Cole of Paris. A small clear pipe was also seen on the bed.

Francis asked Cole and the other woman, identified in arrest reports as 32-year-old Miranda Ranell Thomas of Paris, to get up off the bed. When they complied, the officer observed another bag with a large amount of suspected meth inside of it. As a result, both Thomas and Cole were arrested at 1:30 p.m. June 9, 2021, with possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. The Two Paris women remained in Hopkins County jail Thursday morning, June 10, 2021; bond was set at $50,000 each on the charge, according to jail reports.
