Sept. 16, 2015, SCU Investigation Nets Multiple Arrests
SEPTEMBER 16, 2015.
Weatherford-Parker County Special Crimes Unit arrested several people Monday, Sept. 14, 2015, in connection with a narcotics investigation.
SCU members approached a residence in the 800 block of Lynch Bend Road in Northern Parker County, in an undercover capacity to acquire additional information about the investigation stemming from an anonymous Crime Stoppers Tip.
SCU members spoke with the female, identified as Gayla Eugenia Hammons, 54, who was unfamiliar with the investigators, but Hammons struck up an open conversation about narcotics, resulting in the sale of methamphetamine from Hammons to undercover officers. Two adults, identified as Samantha Louise Bozeman, 24, and Daniel Wayne Pack, 26, along with a juvenile male arrived at the residence a short time later. Further during the investigation, SCU members discovered the suspects had made marijuana available to the minor.
Bozeman and Pack implicated themselves to investigators, saying they gave money to the minor to purchase marijuana for them, from Jerry Wayne Hammons, 21, located inside the residence. Another female, identified as Cheyanne McConnell, 18, was discovered inside the home.
The investigation continued as SCU members spoke with McConnell and Jerry Hammons, finding enough evidence to obtain and execute a search warrant for the residence.
As a result of the search warrant, SCU investigators seized drug paraphernalia discovered throughout McConnell’s and Jerry Hammons’ bedroom. SCU investigators also seized plastic baggies and digital scales, commonly used in the sale and distribution of narcotics, along with 6.5 grams of Alprazolam (Xanax), 2.2 grams of cocaine, 3.45 ounces of marijuana and 5.5 grams of MDMA (ecstasy), pipes and bongs found inside the residence. SCU investigators additionally seized 260 grams of suspected liquid codeine. Charges are pending laboratory results.
