Stop yields multiple charges

December 12, 2012

A traffic stop at the intersection of Tin Top Highway and Lipan Highway led to the arrest on Thursday of two Hood County men on separate felony drug counts, along with an assortment of warrants, according to Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose.

Deputies pulled over the vehicle and eventually arrested the driver, William Sloan Dempsey, 41, of Tolar, along with a passenger, Paul Joseph Nesselroad of the Indian Harbor subdivision, Rose said.

Rose said that Nesselroad “was found to be in possession of over a gram of meth and had several felony warrants.”

He added that “Dempsey was also in possession of under a gram of meth and had a traffic warrant.”

Nesselroad was charged with a third-degree felony count of possession of a controlled substance ($15,000 bond) in connection with the substance found, Rose said. His warrants included manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony (Hood County, $15,000 bond), theft over $20,000/under $100,000, a third-degree felony (Tarrant County, $50,000 bond) and driving with invalid license, a Class B misdemeanor (Hood, $3,000 bond), Rose said. He remained in the Hood County Jail as of press time, Rose noted.

Dempsey’s meth charge is a state jail felony count ($7,500 bond), Rose stated. He was also charged with a Class C misdemeanor on a traffic offense. He was released from custody after posting bond.
