Nurse Stopped; Drugs Found

June 1, 2023 – A Hopkins County Deputy noticed a Red Nissan Sentra fail to come to a complete stop at the intersection of Jefferson and Jackson St in Sulphur Springs. A traffic stop was initiated and the Nissan came to rest near the intersection of Houston and Jackson St. The traffic stop occurred at around 11:30PM.

As the Deputy approached the vehicle, a strong odor of marijuana emanated from the car. The 51 year-old driver admitted to have a rolled blunt inside her car. She was asked to exit the vehicle. As she did, she grabbed her purse. A probable cause search of her purse revealed a brown glass bottle containing methamphetamine. A search of her vehicle revealed a cup in the center console filled with an alcoholic beverage and a baggie containing marijuana.

During her arrest, she stated that because she is a nurse, she should not be arrested for possession of meth. She was transported to the Hopkins County Jail without incident. Her vehicle was released to a friend.
