Sulphur Springs Police Communications Operators notified Officers Dustin Green and Zachary Davis of a report regarding a stolen pickup. Green reported seeing a Chevrolet Silverado with the license plate number given traveling on North Hilcrest Drive (Loop 301) and stopped the truck.

Upon contact, the driver was identified as Nichelle Vining. The Decatur woman was taken into custody at 4:03 a.m. Thursday, following further investigation and taken to jail on an unauthorized use of a motor vehicle charge. At the jail, it was learned the woman is actually Sharlyne Kay Vining, who goes by Shell and Nichelle.

Consequently, she was charged not only on the felony stolen vehicle charge but also on a failure to identify by giving false information charge, and a records check showed the Decatur woman to also be wanted in Palo Pinto County on a warrant for failure to appear on a resisting arrest or transport charge. She remained in Hopkins County jail Thursday afternoon, March 31, 2022, on all three charges, according to jail reports.
