3 Selma suspects arrested for several counts of drug possession

Three Selma residents were charged with multiple counts of unlawful drug possession over the weekend.

Kea’Leetaa Wilson, Georgio Howell and TyQuarius Murray were all arrested for several counts of drug possession, according to Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson. Howell, Murray and Wilson were charged with unlawful possession of controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and first-degree possession of marijuana.

“These guys tried to sneak drugs into the Dallas County Jail and get pulled over by Dallas County Sheriff Deputies,” Jackson said. “The deputies did a great job.”

Howell and Wilson’s bonds were set at $500,000 each by Dallas County District Court Judge Bob Armstrong. Murray’s bond was set at $100,000.

Armstrong later revoked Howell’s bond because of his pending assault charge at Vasser’s Grocery. Howell is a co-defendant to Bo Parker, the CEO of the Washington Street Gang.

Jackson said a motion was filed to revoke Wilson’s bond because of his attempted murder charge, conspiracy to commit murder and discharging gun into an occupied building charge.
