Responding to a suspicious person report after 2 a.m. Monday, one of Sheriff Botie Hillhouse’s Sergeants arrested a wanted woman in Gun Barrel City who had a methamphetamine bong and outstanding warrants.
Megan Dianne Ward, 28, of Kemp was at a home in the 300 block of Sailfish Drive when Sgt. Patrick Johnson arrived and knocked on the door.
She answered and retreated into the house.
Hillhouse said his Sergeant met a man at the back of the house who was evasive, saying things that did not make sense.
Back inside to see if anyone needed assistance, Johnson spotted a plastic bottle with a used, meth-smoking, glass pipe attached. Beside it, was a clear, plastic baggie containing meth.
Ward said the bong and meth were hers.
When a warrant check was run, it showed she was wanted on a forgery charge by the Malakoff Police Department and a controlled substance possession charge out of the 173rd District Court of Henderson County.
Ward was placed under arrest for the meth and outstanding warrants and taken to Hillhouse’s jail.
