A man recently arrested for a string of business burglaries faces new drug charges.
Last month the Hinesville Police Department arrested Kenya Scott and Daniel Turner for their alleged roles in a series of business burglaries throughout the city between July 23 and 25.
Scott was arrested July 25 and remains in jail awaiting a bond hearing. He faces 10 counts of burglary in the second degree.
Turner currently faces six counts of burglary and now also faces one count of possession of a schedule III controlled substance and one count of possession of tools for the commission of a crime.
According to HPD Narcotics Investigator Joshua Heath Turner, police had warrants out for Turner’s arrest for the alleged burglaries. Police found Turner inside a car in the parking lot of Lowe’s July 27. During the arrest and investigation, Heath said there was visible amounts of what tested to be cocaine in the car. Police also found a scale, crack and other items inside a camouflage duffle bag in the back seat of the car.
Turner’s bond was initially set at $44,000. It was lowered to $22,100 in August. During a brief hearing Tuesday, the defendant’s attorney requested another bond reduction in order for Turner to be able to attend a drug rehabilitation program.
Liberty County Superior Court Judge Glen A. Cheney said arrangements should be made to have a set enrollment date and location for Turner to enter rehab. Once those were in place he would be open to revisit bond.
Turner’s bond remains at $22,100.
