Woman Jailed On Controlled Substance Warrant
An out-of-state pair was jailed after PCP was founding in their possession during a routine traffic stop early Monday morning. A Sulphur Springs woman was arrested Saturday on a controlled substance warrant, according to arrest reports.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Drew Fisher reported stopping John Davis Fowler at 1:43 a.m. July 11, 2022, on the south Interstate service road at FM 275 for failure to drive a Cadillac ATS in a single lane. Upon contact, Fisher noted the 41-year-old Hugo, Oklahoma man who’d been driving appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance. Fowler had slurred speech and appeared confused, Fisher reported.
Fisher and Sgt. Tanner Steward continued investigating, conducting standard field sobriety tests and detaining Fowler. Deputies later located a small vial that contained what was believed to be PCP liquid on the ground beside Fowler, Fisher alleged in arrest reports.
Fowler reportedly gave deputies permission to search the car. They found a vial containing suspected PCP in the seat of passenger, 42-year-old Shawn Antwan Lewis of Bakersfield, California, according to arrest reports.
Fowler and Lewis were taken into custody at 2:06 a.m. July 11, 2022, and transported to jail, where each was booked in for just before 4 a.m. July 11, 2022, for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, the suspected PCP.
Deputies were unable to weigh the liquid alone, so the final weight of the suspected PCP will be determined during lab analysis, Fisher noted in arrest reports.
Both men remained in Hopkins County jail later Monday, July 11, 2022.
HCSO Deputy Isaac Foley reported seeing Linda Ann Miears, a woman he knew had outstanding warrants, at 9:40 p.m. Saturday, July 9, 2022, operating a Hyundai SUV on Gilmer Street. So, he initiated at traffic stop in the 800 block of Gilmer Street.
Foley reported taking the 57-year-old Sulphur Springs woman into custody and transported her to Hopkins County jail. Miears was booked in on possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance in a drug-free zone and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence with intent to impair warrants. The offenses, Foley alleged in arrest reports, occurred on May 27, 2022, on Connally Street at Garrison Street.
