The Kerr County Sheriff’s Department, along with the Kendall County Central Texas Criminal Interdiction Unit, arrested two individuals for possession of methamphetamine on September 20.  Law enforcement conducted a traffic stop in the 1200 block of Lower Turtle Creek Road in Kerrville, at which time deputies detected an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, according to a press release.  Subsequently, a narcotics K9 indicated a positive alert to narcotics on the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle, 32-year-old Alexander Taylor Stinson, was detained and placed under arrest after discarding a suspected bag of methamphetamine on the ground and was later found to have a second bag of methamphetamine on his person.

The passenger, identified as 43-year-old Tara Lynne Hise, of Bandera, was found to be in possession of two bags of substance believed to be methamphetamine, along with drug paraphernalia.  A total of roughly four and a half ounces of suspected methamphetamine were recovered during the investigation.

Stinson and Hise were both booked into the Kerr County Jail on one count each of Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance, and one count each of Tampering with Physical Evidence, with bond set at $50,000 each.  Upon booking, Hise was found to have concealed two additional bags of a substance believed to be methamphetamine on her person.

“This case is another win, not just for our deputies and law enforcement partners, but most importantly for the safety of Kerr County,” said Kerr County Sheriff Larry Leitha.  Leitha added, “The methamphetamine trade and the halo of criminal activity that surrounds it affects everyone who lives here, even if it seems invisible.”

Anyone who has any information on illicit drug sales in Kerr County can call Kerr County Crime Stoppers at (830) 896-TIPS. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for any information leading to felony arrests.
