Tuesday, February 24, 2004

Douglas J. Turner, 28, of Haywood City, Mo., faces charges in Scott County of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, trafficking and resisting arrest. His bond is set at $400,000.

Turner was arrested Friday in Sikeston, Mo., at 807 William St. Deputies approached, telling Turner he was under arrest, but he ignored them and continued toward the residence and struggled with deputies. Deputies then used their Taser guns to immobilize him.

A search of his person turned up 81 grams of a substance believed to be marijuana, approximately 4 grams of a substance believed to be cocaine and 13.5 grams of a substance believed to be crack cocaine.
