Paris police stopped a 26-year-old man over the weekend because they knew he didn’t have a valid driver’s license, said Curtis Garrett, public information officer for the Paris Police Department.
After they pulled Jeffery Todd Corbin and his passenger over about 9:40 a.m. Friday in the 300 block of Northeast 12th Street, officers discovered he and Ashley Brooke Law, both of 125 NW 3rd St. in Detroit, had ID’s of at least five people in their possession.
Both were charged with fraudulent use or possession of identifying information. Corbin was also charged for driving without a license, and Law was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
Garrett said the two are under investigation in connection with numerous forgeries that have been reported.
An alert from Greenville police led Paris police to stop a vehicle about 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the 1200 block of Northwest Loop 286.
Derrick Anthony Smith, 40, of Arlington was taken into custody after he was pulled over for a minor traffic violation. The vehicle was towed to the police department, and with the assistance of a K-9 unit from McKinney, officers found a large quantity of heroin, almost $4,000 in cash, and bottles of over-the-counter sleep aids that are often used to cut heroin, Garrett said.
Smith was charged with driving with no valid driver’s license, no valid motor vehicle inspection, unlicensed use of a criminal instrument, and manufacture or delivery of more than 4 grams but less than 200 grams of a controlled substance PG1.
Garrett said police responded to 87 calls for service on Friday, 97 calls on Saturday, and 74 calls on Sunday.
Over the 72 hours ending Monday morning, Garrett said, police arrested 29 people.
Besides Smith, Corbin and Law, two arrests were for public intoxication, one on a bond surrender warrant, 16 on traffic warrants, one on a warrant for burglary of a motor vehicle, one for evading arrest, one for assault, three for theft, one for failure to identify by giving a wrong name, one for harassment, one for driving while intoxicated, and three on emergency detention.
