On Sunday night May 8, 2022, Bell County K-9 Sgt. Adam Southern was dispatched to Sutty Hollow Road in reference to a male individual passed out and slumped over the steering wheel of a red 1994 Ford Ranger.


Once on scene, Sgt. Southern observed a man, later identified as 32 year old Pete Steven Hurst of Frakes, sitting slumped over in the driver’s seat of the vehicle which was parked in the middle of the roadway.


Sgt. Southern states that he had to beat on the window repeatedly until Hurst woke up. The sergeant also states that he observed a syringe cap laying in Hurst’s lap and when he was asked about the item he stated he had a “loaded shot” in his pocket.


Hurst was asked to exit the vehicle and the Sgt. Southern retrieved the syringe which contained a substance believed to be Methamphetamine. Hurst was then placed in custody and a search incident to arrest revealed a folded lottery ticket which held a crystal-like substance believed to be Methamphetamine.


Pete Steven Hurst was lodged in the Bell County Detention Center charged with possession of controlled substance – 1st degree, possession of drug paraphernalia, public intoxication, and improper parking. He was also served with an outstanding bench warrant.


He is being held on a $3,000 cash bond.
