Howe police made two arrests in the last few days of March, as reported by Sgt. Keith Milks.
On March 24, Officer Brandon Ozuna arrested a 33-year-old Farmers Branch man on a charge of driving while intoxicated with an open container. Milks said the arrest came after Ozuna saw the driver commit a traffic offense and stopped him on U.S. 75. The suspect posted bail of $1,500 in surety bonds later that day and was released.
On March 30, Milks jailed a suspect on a charge of possession of controlled substance, more specifically Ecstasy, less than one gram. Milks stopped a white GMC Sierra going north on U.S. 75 for multiple equipment violations. His police dog, Loki, alerted to the odor of narcotics inside the truck. Milks searched and found the substance, made the arrest and booked the suspect into Grayson County Jail. The suspect, a 22-year-old Sherman man admitted, Milks reported, that the substance was Ecstasy. He posted bail for his release in the amount of $5,000 in surety bond and was released later that day.
