The 27-year-old Sulphur Springs man arrested last week for breaking the glass restrooms on Celebration Plaza received an additional charge early Friday morning for allegedly damaging a protective jail cell, according to arrest reports.
Landon Paul Shearer, held since he admitted Oct. 29 to breaking several of the glass panels in the see-through loos downtown, allegedly was being held in a protective cell early Friday morning, Nov. 5, 2021. While performing routine rounds, a corrections officer reported discovering the protective padding on the floor in the cell he was held in had been damaged. The damage was estimated to cost about $10,000 to repair.
Shearer was removed from the damaged cell and placed into the neighboring protective cell and is being charged with criminal mischief resulting in $2,500 worth or more but less than $30,000 worth damage to the padded cell floor, Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Drew Fisher noted in arrest reports.
The 27-year-old Sulphur Springs man remained in Hopkins County jail Friday afternoon, Nov. 5, 2021, in lieu of the $100,000 bond set on the first criminal mischief charge and $15,000 bond on the new criminal mischief charge for damaging a protective jail cell.
