Four arrested for drug possession
After a lengthy investigation of a suspected drug dealer, Stephenville police arrested four individuals for possession of marijuana Thursday at a home located in the 500 block of Crow Street.
While a tactical team attempted to execute a search warrant at the home of the suspect, Justyn Turner Henderson, 23, a pit bull inside the house charged the officers, who shot and killed the dog.
Four suspects were inside the home at the time, and slammed the door shut on the officers, who then used a battering ram to gain entry.
Police Chief Roy Halsell said a tactical team was used because investigators had credible evidence that there was an SKS rifle inside the home.
Officers found a rifle, pistol and two pounds of marijuana inside the house.
Henderson, Darriel Collins, 19, and Sheldon Monseque, 20, were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana. Henderson and Collins are students at Tarleton State University. Monseque is a former Tarleton football player, who no longer attends the university. A fourth suspect, Shaketha Lambert, 22, was also arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and theft.
