A 24 year old Sulphur Springs man was arrested yesterday on Carter St after a Sulphur Springs Police Department-Special Crimes Unit investigation into the distribution of narcotics.
SCU purchased narcotics from Jackson Blaze Gilreath on multiple occassions, according to arrest reports. SSPD then obtained two warrants for Gilreath’s arrest for Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance.

Gilreath allegedly attempted to discard a syringe and a hide-a-key box containing narcotics during the course of the arrest which resulted in additional charges for Possession of a Controlled Substance and Tampering with Physical Evidence.
