2 Arrested Tuesday On Controlled Substance Charges

Two people were arrested in Hopkins County on controlled substance charges, according to arrest reports. A 67-year-old Sulphur Springs man was reportedly found to be in possession of methamphetamine when police served him with a warrant for selling the substance, while a 38-year-old Cumby man was alleged to have a bag of suspected meth in his pocket during a traffic stop, according to arrest reports.

CR 4131 Arrests

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputies Ryan Reed and Drew Fisher, and Sgt. Tanner Steward reported stopping Asa Cole Bloyed at 9:33 p.m. Monday, Nov. 7, 2022, at County Road 4131 at County Road 4120 for failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to signal the proper distance prior to a turn.

Upon contact with the occupants, a records check showed the passenger, Chaney Nicole Doyle, to be wanted on Hopkins County warrants for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charges, and Sulphur Springs warrants for failure to maintain financial responsibility (the charge for not having vehicle insurance) and expired registration. The 42-year-old Sulphur Springs woman was taken into custody at 9:37 p.m. on all four warrants. Fees owes on the three misdemeanor charges totaled $1,111.50, the bond on the controlled substance charge was set at $5,000, Sgt. Steward noted in arrest reports.

While talking with a deputy, 38-year-old Bloyed reportedly avoided making eye contact with him, instead looking around the Hyundai SUV. When asked if there was anything illegal in the vehicle and if deputies could search it, the Cumby man refused permission, Steward alleged in arrest reports.

Steward had the man step out of the SUV, then asked to search him. Bloyed immediately turned away from the deputy. As a deputy began patting the Cumby man down, he reported feeling what to him felt like a bag of rocks in Bloyed’s shorts pocket, Steward alleged in arrest reports. When confronted about it, Bloyed spun further away from the officer. The deputy noticed, however the man was holding a clear baggy in a closed hand, Steward alleged in arrest reports.

The deputy retrieved the bag from Bloyed and found it to contain a crystal-like substance that later field-tested positive for methamphetamine, Steward alleged in arrest reports. The man was placed into custody at 9:40 p.m. Nov. 7, 2022. Bloyed was allowed to contact his mother to retrieve the vehicle. After releasing it to her, the sheriff’s officers transported Bloyed to the county jail.

The suspected meth weighed 1.089 grams, including packaging. Thus, Bloyed was booked in at 11:21 p.m. Nov. 7, 2022, on a possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, Steward alleged in arrest reports.

Estes had obtained the warrant after the 67-year-old Sulphur Springs man was involved in an undercover operation conducted by SCU in which 1.8 grams of methamphetamine was alleged to have been purchased from him, according to arrest reports.

When the officers contacted Hadaway at his residence, he allowed Lt. Estes to come inside. The SCU officer reported finding 3.4 grams of meth, according to arrest reports. They took the 67-year-old man into custody at 9:30 a.m. Nov. 7, 2022.

As a result, Hadaway was booked into Hopkins County jail at 10:19 a.m. Monday not only on the manufacture or delivery of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance warrant, but also on a new possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge, according to arrest reports.
