Upon arrival, they contacted and issued James Hurston Milam a trespass warning for the property in question. A records check showed the 43-year-old Sulphur Springs man to be wanted on multiple outstanding warrants. SSPD Officer Steven Osborne took Milam into custody at 2:50 p.m. and transported him to jail.

Milam was booked in at 3:34 p.m. June 2, 2022, on a Hopkins County burglary of a habitation warrant, Lamar County warrants for possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group1 controlled substance and theft of property valued at less than $2,500 with two or more previous convictions, and a warrant out of Austin for violation of parole, according to arrest reports.

Jail records show he also had two traffic warrants and one for possessing drug paraphernalia added to his list of charges at the jail.
