Police make drug bust in eastern Greene

Monday, February 2, 2009

Preliminary charges were filed in Greene Superior Court on Monday against four persons arrested in eastern Greene County late Thursday in connection with a drug-dealing operation.

Brandon Donald Rollins, 19, and Christy Davis, 19, both of Solsberry, and Dawna Hoff, 19, and Jesse R. Hoff, 20, both of Bloomington, were all booked into the Greene County Jail on Thursday.

Dawna Hoff and Jesse Hoff were released Friday after posting $500 bond each.

Rollins and Davis are being held without bond.

The preliminary charges against Rollins and Davis are the same: Dealing in cocaine in an amount over three grams, a class A felony; possession of cocaine with a firearm, a class C felony; dealing in marijuana, a class C felony; and maintaining a common nuisance, a class D felony.

Dawna Hoff and Jesse Hoff were both charged with visiting a common nuisance, a class B misdemeanor.

The arrests came after a search warrant was executed at Rollins' residence on Radar Lane. When officers arrived, the four subjects arrested were inside the home. Rollins and Davis were allegedly in the process of breaking up, weighing and packaging a large quantity of marijuana and of cocaine that had been delivered earlier the same day during a controlled delivery involving undercover officers.

From the living room of the house, officers took a large dog food bag containing numerous large plastic bags that contained marijuana -- ready to be distributed. Another quantity of marijuana not yet packaged was found in a bedroom closet. A quantity of cocaine was also found in the bedroom.

The marijuana weighed approximately 20 pounds. The quantity of cocaine weighed 28 grams.

When the marijuana and cocaine were delivered to the residence, while Davis calculated the weights, Rollins negotiated prices. According to a probable cause affidavit, he said he had buyers and would pay for the delivery within two days. The price was $15,050 -- $800 for the cocaine and $14,250 for the marijuana.

In addition to the marijuana and cocaine, officers also seized a large sum of cash from the residence and numerous firearms and ammunition including two handguns and several rifles and shotguns.

They also located body armor in a bedroom closet.

According to the affidavit, during an interview Rollins admitted to selling both marijuana and cocaine.

The probable cause states that officers believe that Rollins and Davis possessed the controlled substances with the intent to deliver and that this was an ongoing criminal enterprise.

Initial hearings for both Rollins and Davis are expected to be today.

What a bunch of losers to get caught like that. They should have kept the other ones in jail too.

There are only 2 reasons that come to mind why a person would have body armour in the closet. The first is rather obvious, to protect themselves from gunfire from a law enforcement officer. The second is to participate in a jousting contest!! I don't think that Greene County is famous for that type of Winter sport. What a bunch of well--you get the general idea..
