Springville woman arrested on domestic battery warrant and drug charges

SPRINGVILLE - JANUARY 6, 2023 - On January 4th, at approximately 11:00 pm, Lawrence County Sheriff Department Deputies Clifford Pruett, Josh Rhoades, and Kenton Carter went to a residence in the 40 block of Kenwood Addition Road in an attempt to serve an arrest warrant on Rosalia Sons 53, Springville.

Sons was wanted on a warrant for Domestic Battery Causing Injury and Strangulation.

The warrant stemmed from an investigation that Deputy Rhoades and Deputy Whitney Anderson conducted on December 12, 2023.

During the investigation, officers learned that a female had allegedly been battered by Sons.

The female victim suffered two very swollen and black eyes, along with several marks and injuries to her face.

Sons had left the residence before officers arrived, and she could not be located. The victim was transported to a safe location and officers filed for an arrest warrant on Sons.

When deputies arrived at the residence on January 4th, they made contact with Sons. They also detected the odor of marijuana coming from the residence. They obtained consent from Sons to search the residence. As officers began to search, they located drug paraphernalia associated with the use of methamphetamine. At that time, Sons withdrew her consent to search.

Deputy Pruett applied for a search warrant, which was signed by the Honorable Judge Plummer. The search warrant was then executed.

During the search, officers located marijuana, methamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia. Sons was arrested on the felony warrant, plus the additional offenses of possession of methamphetamine, marijuana, and paraphernalia. She was incarcerated at the Lawrence County Jail.

Don’t answer the door for the police, especially if you have a warrant. She could have kept quiet and left the door shut and they would have pissed off eventually. Open the door and give search consent!? Are you mad?
