Two women were arrested by deputies over the past 4 days on 1 controlled substance charge each, according to arrest reports.
Hillcrest Drive Traffic Stop
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Justin Wilkerson stopped a Dodge Ram pickup at 6:33 a.m. July 22, 2022, on South Hillcrest Drive south of Houston Street for a defective tail light and an expired registration. While talking with the driver, Wilkerson noticed a pipe of the kind commonly used to smoke marijuana containing burn marijuana in view in the truck.
He had Lesa Danielle Burns step out of the vehicle. A records check revealed the woman to be wanted on two local traffic warrants, so Wilkerson placed the 43-year-old Fruitvale woman into custody then conducted a probable cause search of the pickup. He reported finding items of drug paraphernalia and a small bag containing a crystal-like substance he believed based on his law enforcement training to be methamphetamine.
HCSO Sgt. Todd Evans soon arrived to assist Wilkerson by transporting Burns to jail at 6:39 a.m. The suspected contraband was taken as evidence and the woman’s vehicle impounded. The suspected methamphetamine weighed 0.054 gram, including packaging, and tested positive for meth. As a result, the woman was booked into the county jail at 8:01 a.m. Friday, on a possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance as well as the speeding and driving while license invalid warrants. A drug-free zone enhancement was added to the controlled substance charge due to the vehicle’s proximity to an elementary school (about 78 feet away).
Burns, who jail reports show is also known by Lisa Danielle Dick and Lesa Danielle Dick, was released from Hopkins County jail later July 22, 2022, on a $10,000 bond on the controlled substance charge. Fees owed on the traffic charges totaled $877.50, according to arrest reports.
West Shannon Road Traffic Stop
Hopkins County Sheriff’s office Deputies Drew Fisher and Isaac Foley reported stopping a Chevrolet Equinox at 3:02 a.m. Monday, July 25, 2022, in the 1600 block of West Shannon Road for a traffic violation.
While talking to deputies, the 22-year-old Dallas woman displayed signs of nervousness and deceptiveness, Fisher alleged in arrest reports. When the deputies advised the woman of her rights, she allegedly admitted to having methamphetamine in her vehicle. Deputies looked and reported finding a clear bag containing what amounted to be 0.564 grams of what appeared to be meth.
Amy June Snyder was taken into custody at 3:13 a.m. Monday and transported to Hopkins County jail, where she was booked in at 3:47 a.m. on a possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1/1-B controlled substance charge and was also charged on a city no driver’s license offense.
