Federal charges levied on Allen

Published 1:05 am Saturday, August 20, 2011

Arrested in mid-February for involvement in an incident that led to the death of Peter Hatcher, Undray Allen, known by some as “Day Day,” was out on bond when he again found trouble with the law when authorities executed a search warrant at Allen’s Merrimac Heights apartment in mid-June.

In his apartment, authorities found crack and powdered cocaine worth an estimated $20,000, two revolvers and approximately $3,500 in cash.

Following his arrest, District Judge Bob Armstrong revoked Allen’s previous bond for the murder charge and set a $2.5 million bond on the new charges.

But, that is not where the problems ended for Allen.

This week, Allen was indicted on federal drug and firearm charges in Federal Court in Mobile.

Allen was indicted on one count of possession with the intent to distribute crack cocaine, one count of possession with the intent to distribute powder cocaine and one count of felon in possession of a firearm.

Allen was on state probation for two counts of possession of a controlled substance and out on bond for murder at the time of his arrest in June.

“These folks need to understand that we are going to pursue these charges as far as we can,” Selma Chief of Police William T. Riley said Wednesday following Allen’s indictment. “We are going to seek federal charges when we can to ensure these criminals are not back on the streets.

As of Thursday, Allen remained in federal custody in Mobile.
