Hankins and Donnell received an additional charge of simple possession and casual exchange of schedule V narcotics.

The additional charges resulted from 15 pills suspected to be Gabapentin. According to Alamo Police Chief Brad York, the pills have been sent to the lab for testing.

On Monday, October 28, four additional arrests were made as APD, CCSD and a Tennessee Highway Patrol K-9 officer executed a search warrant at 81 Oak Street.

Although these two cases weren’t connected, Chief York said, “This is another great example of Crockett County Law Enforcement Agencies working together to stop the illegal sales and use of drugs in the community. This is a continuing effort to stop illegal drug use in the community and it cannot be done by one person, or one agency, it takes each and every law enforcement agency working together with the community. The agencies have been doing well working together to stop the illegal drug use in Crockett County.”

Paul, Roger, Hankins, Donnell, Ramagos and Mangles were arraigned on October 24.

Paul received a $500,000 and was not appointed an attorney, Roger received a $500,000 bond and was appointed public defender Bob Hooper, Hankins received a $250,000 bond and was appointed public defender Bill Milam, Donnell received a $250,000 bond with a public defender appointed, Ramagos received a $250,000 and was appointed public defender Taylor Hughes, Mangels received a $250,000 bond and was appointed public defender Harold Guinn.
