Comments Off on Colbert citizen charged with three felonies

DURANT — A Colbert man has been hit with three felonies, following a search of his home last month by the Bryan County District Attorney’s Drug Task Force.

David Kim Brockett, 42, was charged Monday with manufacturing methamphetamine within 2,000 feet of a school, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.

According to an affidavit by Drug Task Force Agent Wayne Stanley, officers searched Brockett’s 620 Burney St. home April 27 and seized numerous item associated with the clandestine manufacture of methamphetamine.

The affidavit states that baggies containing a white, powdery substance that tested positive methamphetamine were also seized. Officers found two black-powder pistols, and due to Brockett having a prior felony conviction for drug possession with intent to distribute, he is prohibited from possessing firearms. The residence is located within 2,000 feet of Colbert Westward School. A warrant has been issued for Brockett’s arrest.

In other crimes, Durant Police arrested two people on Saturday for suspicion of burglary.

Patrolmen Jason Colvard and Carter Mathews were dispatched at 10:48 p.m. to Hitchcock Distributing, 2901 W. Arkansas St., after an alarm activated.

Colvard found a man at an open sliding door, who was helping a woman from the drop off from the door to the ground. The report stated that both ran back inside after they were ordered to stop.

Officers followed them and found them trying to hide underneath a coat. They were ordered out at gunpoint and then handcuffed. The report stated that the woman, Sheila Odum, 28, said they were just walking along the railroad tracks to get home.

The man, identified as Brent Walker, 36, said they were looking for a place to have sex, the report stated, and he asked if police received his 911 call about an open door.

According to the report, Walker’s phone was checked and no such call had been placed. Officers found several items outside of the business that the owner said belonged to the company.

The report stated that Walker’s vehicle was found five blocks away and it contained several items suspected of having been stolen. Walker and Odum were booked into jail for suspicion of second-degree burglary. The District Attorney’s Office is reviewing the report to determine charges.

Lillian Coldwell told Bryan County Sheriff’s Deputy John Ray Haislip last week that a saddle had been stolen out of her shed on Crest View Lane. There was no forced entry.

Ryan Lovelace told Deputy Brian Carr on Monday that his wallet containing $250 was stolen out of his unlocked truck in the 2000 block of Willafa Woods Road. A brass gear shifter was also stolen.
