MWPD arrests three after incidents involving drugs and mischief


— By CLINT FOSTER



The Mineral Wells Police Department arrested three individuals involved in three unique incidents last week – each having to do with either a car, drugs or both.

The first incident stemmed from a domestic dispute around 1 a.m., Feb. 17, in the 600 block of SW 15th Avenue. Police said a man at the scene told them he had come to Bonnie Marie Pacey's home to get some clothes when a "highly intoxicated" Pacey proceeded to get angry and set fire to some of his belongings.

Police said Pacey, 45, burned the front seat of the victim's 2009 Chevrolet HHR, a seat on the bow of his boat and his denim jacket – which was still on fire in the front yard when police arrived.

Although the victim advised he did not want to pursue charges, police arrested Pacey for criminal mischief between $50 and $500 and booked her into the Mineral Wells City Jail.

The second incident – also involving a vehicle – was a routine traffic stop on East Hubbard Street at around 9:45 p.m., Feb. 18. Police pulled over Julius Manford Johnson, 21, for failing to signal a lane change but felt the need to search his Pontiac Firebird Coupe once it was on the side of the road.

After receiving consent to search, police reported finding Alprazolam – commonly known as Xanax – as well as Hydrocodone, marijuana and a marijuana grinder. Police arrested Johnson for two counts of possession of a controlled substance under 28 grams and possession of marijuana under 2 ounces.

The third and final noteworthy incident was a welfare check in the 1100 block of SE 8th Street at around midnight between Thursday and Friday. Police said Dillon Floyd Baker, 21, was involved in an incident with a broken window at another location that day before police found him at this residence.

Upon arrival, police said they found 10 bags of King Kong K2 and 44 empty bags of 7H, all in plain sight. The now illegal form of synthetic marijuana is sprayed with chemicals that have been found to cause agitation, increased sweating and hallucinations in certain cases.

Baker was arrested for manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance between 4 and 400 grams in addition to his offense of criminal mischief between $50 and $500.
