Two Sulphur Springs residents were arrested at a Main Street grocery store at 1:43 p.m. Tuesday.

SSPD officers were dispatched to the location in reference to a theft. Officer Robinson reportedly made contact with a 48-year-old woman who allegedly admitted to taking six bags of Corn Nuts, passing all points of sale. She was charged with theft of property under $100 with a previous conviction.

The woman was going to release her vehicle to a 25-year-old male neighbor, but he was found to have an active warrant out of Rockwall County for a motion to revoke bond on a charge of possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. He was taken into custody as well.

No bond was set for either party, and both remained in custody as of press time, according to arrest reports and jail records.

Como man arrested following disturbance

Deputies arrested a 19-year-old Como man at a residence on County Road 2330 at 8:45 p.m. Monday on charges of resisting arrest, search or transport and evading arrest or detention.

Deputies were dispatched to the residence in reference to a disturbance where the man was reportedly drinking and behaving aggressively during a verbal disturbance with his grandmother. Family members reportedly claimed he gripped his grandmother’s knee, causing pain. The teen reportedly admitted to having approximately eight beers.

When officers attempted to place the man in custody, he reportedly refused to put his hands behind his back. He also allegedly pulled away from officers by removing his sweatshirt, then ran around the back of the residence. He was detained and escorted to a patrol vehicle, where he allegedly attempted to bite a deputy and was “taken to the ground” for officers’ safety. The teen’s family reportedly became involved in the confrontation, creating a possible safety issue, officers alleged in reports.

Deputies attempted to place the teen in a patrol unit, where he allegedly refused to move his foot from the door. Deputies reportedly pushed his foot inside the vehicle in order to close the door.

Bond was set at $4,000, and the teen was released from custody Tuesday, according to arrest reports and jail records.
