Lakenzie Taylor Jr.

Lakenzie Taylor Jr., 25, of Sulphur Springs was taken into custody in the 8th Judicial District Courthouse Monday on a possession of 4 ounces or more but less than 5 pounds of marijuana charge, according to arrest reports.

Taylor was first arrested on the charge Nov. 19, 2017. He was reportedly stopped around 11:15 p.m. on State Highway 11 west for a defective license plate light. A deputy reported smelling marijuana emitting from his vehicle as he approached it. When the deputy mentioned it, Taylor allegedly admitted it was in the passenger floorboard. Deputies did locate eight baggies of suspected marijuana, which the man had allegedly purchased in Rockwall for $1,000 earlier in the day, the deputy alleged in Taylor’s arrest report on Nov. 19, 2017.

He was arrested at that time on a possession of marijuana charge and transported to the county, where he remained until his release the next day on $5,000 bond.

Taylor was scheduled to appear in the 8th Judicial District Court at 1:30 p.m. Monday for an arraignment, according to the court docket.

He was taken into custody at 1:55 p.m. in district court and booked into the county jail at 2:15 p.m. Monday, June 24, 2019, on the 2017 possession of 4 ounces or more but less than 5 pounds of marijuana charge. He was released from the county jail at 3:45 p.m. Monday, June 24, on a $5,000 bond on the charge, according to jail reports.
