Police arrested two Wills Point men just after 11 a.m. Friday on a controlled substance charge and a warrant each.
Sulphur Springs Police Officer Sean Hoffman stopped a Ford 500 around 10:30 a.m. July 30, 2021, for an expired registration. Upon contact with the occupants, the driver, identified as 34-year-old Christopher Allen Williams, seemed nervous. When asked, Williams initially gave a name and date of birth he later admitted were false. He gave false information because he knew he had an outstanding warrant.
Hoffman asked Williams and the passenger, identified as 36-year-old Kevin Charles Jones, to exit the car. Jones displayed signs of nervousness. Officers found a bag of suspected methamphetamine in the cup holder, a second bag of suspected meth next to the hinge on the trunk and miscellaneous drug paraphernalia throughout the car.
Records checks showed Jones to be wanted in Hunt County for violation of probation and Williams wanted on a parole warrant. Jones too was wanted on a Hunt County warrant.
Both were jailed on one warrant each as well as a possession of 1 gram or ore more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance in a drug-free zone. Williams was also charged with failure to identify.
Williams remained in Hopkins County jail Saturday, July 31, 2021, in lieu of $10,000 bond on the controlled substance charge and $2,000 bond on the failure to ID charge. He was held without bond on the parole charge.
Jones too remained in Hopkins County jail Saturday afternoon, July 31, 2021, in lieu of $10,000 bond on the controlled substance charge, and was held on the Hunt County warrant.
