DAM B – A woman who had recently been seen around the Dam B/Town Bluff area was arrested and charged with felony meth possession.
According to Tyler County Sheriff Bryan Weatherford, deputies with the Tyler County Sheriff’s Office were on patrol on the evening of Monday, May 22, when they made contact with Kayla Slemmons, a 28-year-old woman with no known address. Slemmons, according to Weatherford, had been seen in the area “in recent days,” and while the deputies spoke with her, they detected the odor of marijuana, which she admitted to being in possession of.
The deputies were able to locate a pipe which contained a small amount of marijuana, and Slemmons also had three unloaded syringes, along with a clear container with a crystalline substance, which field-tested positive for methamphetamine.
Slemmons was transported to the Tyler County Justice Center and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. Her bond was set by Pct. 1 Justice of the Peace Trisher Ford at $2,500, and she bonded out, according to records, two days later.
