Suspected meth leads to arrest

He was reportedly stopped for following too closely and had to be transported by EMS to CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs for an asthma attack.

Reyes was found to be in possession of a backpack. When troopers checked the backpack for weapons, they reportedly located a small clear baggie containing suspected methamphetamine, which later weighed in at 1.5 grams.

Reyes was medically cleared and taken into custody. His bond was set at $10,000, and he was released later that day, according to arrest reports and jail records.

Suspect allegedly admits to having drugs

Hopkins County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a residence on County Road 4131 in Cumby at 12:33 p.m. Thursday to perform a welfare check on Bryan Lee Winstead, 31. Deputies were advised Winstead had an active warrant for criminal mischief $100-$750.

When they arrived at the residence, deputies reportedly observed Winstead exiting a garage next to the house. Win-stead allegedly reached into his pocket and reportedly appeared to be extremely nervous while speaking with the deputies. When deputies advised they were going to frisk Winstead, he reportedly advised he was in possession of drugs and gave permission for them to search his pockets.

Deputies reportedly located a hypodermic syringe containing suspected methamphetamine in the left front pocket of Winstead’s jacket and took him into custody.

Winstead reportedly asked deputies to retrieve drug paraphernalia items from the garage to keep them away from children. The contraband reportedly weighed 2.57 grams and field tested positive for methamphetamine.

Winstead was charged with possession of 1-4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. Bond was set at $11,000, and he remained in custody as of press time, according to arrest reports and jail records.
