Wednesday morning, the four individuals who had been arrested November 17th for engaging in organized criminal activity had one more charge added. All four, three of whom remained in Hopkins County Jail on the original charge, are now also charged with aggravated assault in retaliation and bond for each on that charge was set at $40,000 by Justice of the Peace B. J. Teer.
Monday, November 17th, an undercover buy-bust created the necessity for the Special Crimes Unit to rush a house located at 734 I-30 East, which is the South Service Road of I-30, Wednesday. The four arrested had assaulted an individual whom they originally thought would make a buy but was instead an informant. The informant was assaulted and his communication devices including cellphone were taken from him by force.
The Special Crimes Unit rescued the informant and arrested three males, Wes Gerald, 40, Caleb James Bryant, 21, August-Adams, and a female, Morgan Leigh Oboyle, 23, who were all charged at that time with engaging in organized criminal activity. Bonds for the four on the criminal activity charge had been set at $40,000 each by Justice of the Peace Brad Cummings.
