No Smoking Ban Warning-Only Period Ends Today

600px-No_smoking_symbol.svgOn March 24, 2014, the Paris City Council passed an amended ordinance regarding smoking in public places and businesses.

The no smoking ordinance went into effect the night the city council passed it.  However, there was a 30 day period in the ordinance that prevented the police department from issuing citations on violations. The ordinance specifically set out the procedure for warnings only for the first thirty days.

That prohibition ends today, April 23rd with enforcement by citation possible beginning tomorrow, April 24th.

The Paris Police Department is asking for the public’s voluntary compliance with the amended ordinance, as they do with all statutes.  The statute in its entirety is listed on the city of Paris website,

Chief of Police, Bob Hundley states that “to date, we have received very few complaints, but responded to these complaints and issued warnings.”

In nine hours, detectives make seven drug arrests in three rooms of Paris motel

Police Department Car_sliderWithin nine hours, local law enforcement officers went into three motel rooms in the 2500 block of North Main Street in Paris and arrested seven individuals after drugs were found, Paris Police Department spokesman Curtis Garrett said Tuesday.

  • About 3 p.m. Monday, Paris police detectives executed a search warrant on a room and arrested Joe William Acevedo, 29, of Paris on charges of possession of marijuana and of manufacturing or delivering a controlled substance, and Stewart Wayne Buckner, 22, of Powderly on charges of possession of a controlled substance. Two women were arrested and charged with Class C misdemeanors.
  • In a separate incident, Paris police detectives made contact with Nicky Joe Hignight, 53, of Paris and found him in possession of methamphetamine. While officers were attempting to take him into custody, he began kicking at the officers, Garrett said. He was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance and of resisting arrest.
  • About 1 a.m. Tuesday, Paris police and Lamar County Sheriff’s office detectives made contact with Kimberly Dawn Centeno, 43, and Stephanie Ann Williamson, 43, both shown to be living at the same address in Dallas. Williamson was found to be in possession of about two ounces of crystal methamphetamine, and Centeno was found to have an outstanding felony warrant out of Kaufman County, Garrett said.

In the 24-hour period ending Tuesday morning, Paris police officers responded to 96 calls, resulting in 11 arrests, Garrett said.
