Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Thursday, July 17 at 8:12 p.m., Madison County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force investigators stopped a two-door Pontiac sedan at the intersection of Range and Rutledge Streets for a faulty equipment violation. While talking with the driver, investigators observed one of the back seat passengers slide down in the seat and appeared to be attempting to conceal her face. Investigators made contact with the female subject and identified her as Heidi Hopson. A warrants check was conducted through Madison County Sheriff’s Office Communications and discovered that Hopson had an active warrant for her arrest. Hopson was arrested without incident and transported to the Madison County Jail.
