A 22-year-old Sulphur Springs man was arrested Tuesday for the second time this month, while a 27-year-old Sulphur Springs man was jailed Tuesday for the third time this year, both on felony charges.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputies Isaac Foley and Zack Horne were made aware of an active warrant for Hadden Dewayne Moreland’s arrest. The sheriff’s officer followed up on information received that the 22-year-old could potentially be at a County Road 3502 address. They did indeed locate Moreland and took him into custody at 10:21 p.m. Nov. 23, 2021, at the location.
Mooreland was booked into Hopkins County jail around midnight for insufficient bond on an assault on a family or household member that impeded breathing charge. He was originally arrested Nov. 1 on the assault impeding breathing warrant as well as a traffic warrant, then released on a $25,000 bond on the felony charge. He remained in Hopkins County jail Wednesday night, Nov. 24, 2021, in lieu of the new $50,000 bond set on the felony assault charge, according to jail reports.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Aaron Chaney and Investigator Dennis Findley were made aware that Jordan William McKay was at a Houston Street location to turn himself in for bond forfeiture on a possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge.
The sheriff’s officers placed him into custody at 3:50 p.m., confirmed the warrant, arrested Tuesday and transported him in a patrol vehicle to the county jail nearby, according to jail reports.
McKay was arrested Aug. 16, 2021, on the controlled substance charge. Bond was set at $10,000 on the charge; he was released from custody on Nov. 20, 2021.
He had arranged to appear in court earlier that Nov. 23 to plead guilty on the controlled substance charge as part of a plea agreement. However, 27-year-old Sulphur Springs man failed to make the court appearance as scheduled, so his bond was forfeited, and the case was reset and the warrant issued, according to court and jail reports.
McKay remained in Hopkins County jail Wednesday night, Nov. 24, 2021, in lieu of the new $20,000 bond set on the charge.
Tuesday was the third time this year that McKay has been jailed in Hopkins County; he also was arrested July 9, 2021, on possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance and theft of firearm charges, as well as a warrant for not paying a March 10, 2020, public intoxication charge, according to jail reports.
