Man Accused Of Forcing His Way Into A Helm Lane Apartment

Troopers caught a 40-year-old Sulphur Springs man inside a residence he was reportedly seen attempting to force his way into.

Sulphur Springs dispatchers received a 911 call at 1:26 p.m. Sunday, March 6, 2022, from someone reporting the man was attempting to for his way into a Helm Lane apartment. Sulphur Springs Police were dispatched to the location. Before they could get there, dispatch was told the man had made entry into the apartment.

Texas Department of Public Safety troopers in the area heard that the man had made entry and responded as well, arriving ahead of police. Troopers detained the man in handcuffs upon finding him inside the apartment in question. After brief investigation, officials determined the man was at the location to pick up his belongings that were in the residence. In order to get in, the 40-year-old man was believed to have force entry by breaking a window at the apartment, which was not his residential address.

The Sulphur Springs man was released to Sulphur Springs police, who took the man to the county jail, where he was held on a criminal trespass charge for being in the apartment he was reportedly seen trying to forcing his way into, according to arrest reports. The 40-year-old man was released from Hopkins County jail Monday, March 7, 2022, on a $1,000 bond on the misdemeanor trespassing charge, according to arrest reports.
