A deputy with the Holmes County Sheriff’s office responded to Smith Chapel Road around 5:30 p.m. to a complaint of a suspicious person who was possibly conducting a narcotics transaction.
The deputy made contact 21-year-old Tyler Macro of Bonifay, who was traveling on Smith Chapel Road on foot. A pat-down of Macro’s person resulted in the discovery of approximately one gram of methamphetamine.
Macro was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine.
A deputy later stopped a vehicle shortly before 11 p.m. and made contact with the driver, 22-year-old Angela N. Stout of Bonifay. A check with the Holmes County Communications Center revealed that Stout had an active warrant out of Houston County, Alabama.
While in the process of being detained, Stout began actively attempting to resist arrest by repeatedly pulling away from the deputy, but she was eventually taken into custody without incident on the outstanding warrant and with the charge of resisting an officer without violence.
A more extensive search of Stout’s person was performed by a female officer at the Holmes County Jail, and Stout was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, resulting in the additional charges of possession of methamphetamine and smuggling/introduction of contraband into a detention facility.
