CPD Arrests in Dugan Lead to Prison Sentences for 6 Drug Users/Dealers

The Conroe Police Department began investigating several complaints of drug dealing in the Dugan area of Conroe last year.  On Wednesday, June 5, 2013, a total of six individuals involved in the sale and distribution of illegal narcotics in the that area, entered pleas of guilty for their respective charges and each received terms in prison.  These defendants were part of a larger investigation undertaken by the Conroe Police Department Narcotics Division, who identified them and additional defendants who sold crack cocaine to various individuals, over a twelve month period.  Those who entered pleas of guilty yesterday in front of Judge Lisa Michalk of the 221st District Court were all sentenced to various amounts of prison time depending on the level of offense committed. 

The defendants who were convicted yesterday were: Michael Dennis, 8 months State Jail on two “State Jail” Possession of a Controlled Substance cases, Rita Dennis, 2 years Prison for one Third Degree Possession of a Controlled Substance case (less than one gram), Robert Dennis, 5 years Prison for Second Degree Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver (1-4 grams), Jermond Thompson, 6 years Prison for Second Degree Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver (1-4 grams), Roddrick Jordan, 6 years TDCJ-ID  for  Second Degree Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver (1-4 grams), Dexter Williams who plead guilty on May 29, 2013 to 10 years TDCJ-ID for Tampering with Evidence, and Laundon Dennis, 15 years Prison for Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver (1-4 grams).  Approximately twelve additional defendants who have been charged in this investigation remain at large, but all are expected to be taken into custody in the near future.  Lead prosecutor, Rob Freyer, part of District Attorney Brett Ligon’s new Specialized Prosecution Bureau, commended the hard work of Officer Clyde Vogel and Sergeant Troy Roberts, their fellow narcotics officers, and the entire CPD SWAT team, who worked very hard and efficiently to place these defendants identified here into custody without incident.  This case underscores a recurrent theme between law enforcement in our great county and with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office- if you sell drugs in our community, you will get caught, and you be held accountable.  The vast majority of people living in Dugan will be able to sleep a little easier tonight knowing that there are fewer drug dealers on the streets.  Law enforcement has issued at least 15 felony warrants for more drug dealers and arrests are expected shortly.

Montgomery County District Attorney, Brett Ligon, also commended the work of law enforcement in this case.  Ligon points out that by working together on these initiatives, law enforcement is able to more effectively apprehend and prosecute offenders.  In addition, drug and alcohol are involved, in one way or another, with a significant number of the crimes committed in our county and by focusing on pro-active prevention, there should be a general reduction in crime.  Lastly, Ligon reminds the public that area schools let out today and that county law enforcement is working together to ensure the safety of our youth.  Efforts such as this CPD program take multiple drugs and drug dealers off the streets and make our county less attractive to criminals.  A new initiative, the Montgomery County Crime Reduction Unit, will be on the streets this week to ensure the safety of the travelling public and our children as they get out of school.  The Sheriff and all five Montgomery County Constables joined this group in an effort to prevent crime through a visible deterrent effort.
