Another online solicitation suspect arrested

User Rating: / 52

Internet Crimes Against Children investigators with Hopkins County Sheriff's Department and Sulphur Springs Police Department arrested another potential child predator Wednesday evening. Chief Sheriff's Investigator Lewis Tatum said a 30-year-old Tyler man had been communicating with what he thought was a 15-year-old girl through email and text messages. The communication describing a number of different sexual activities was, in fact, with Sgt. Amanda Weatherford, not a teenager. “The ICAC team of Amanda and Corley Weatherford arrested another one last night,” Tatum said. “Joshua Strickland out of Tyler showed up at the same location to pick up a 15-year-old female. We keep arresting them, and they keep coming.” Tatum said officers placed the man under surveillance when he arrived at a local hotel and followed him to his planned meeting place on League Street. As the man arrived at a convenience store parking lot, he spotted officers and attempted to flee the area but was blocked in by police and sheriff's deputies. Strickland, Tatum said, initially resisted officers attempts to take him into custody. “The officers were well organized and it did not take them but just a second to put him into custody,” he said. After the arrest, officers went to the man's hotel room where they located less than a gram of methamphetamine along with a glass pipe and another bag of meth in the man's pocket. Joshua Cain Strickland, 30, of Tyler was booked into Hopkins County jail on charges of online solicitation of a minor and felony possession of a controlled substance.

User Rating: / 26

City-wide clean up set for April 6-11  Spring officially started last Friday and it is time to start getting your home and property cleaned up. To help with that chore, the city of Sulphur Springs will have its annual City-Wide Spring Clean Up starting Monday, April 6, and continuing through Friday, April 11, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day. The city's collection site will be in its usual location on Jefferson Street, about a quarter mile east of the Flowserve plant. “We accept everything except household hazardous waste, chemicals, paint, batteries, tires and appliances that contain freon,” City Manager Marc Maxwell said. The clean up program is open to city residents only and is not for commercial purposes — only residential use. “So bring your water bill and your identification for proof that you are, in fact, a city resident,” the city manager emphasized. “There will be people there to help you off-load your truck or trailer and it should be a fairly orderly process.”
