Federal court appearance for those arrested in massive drug bust

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Monday morning marks the initial appearance before a federal judge in Lubbock for 24 people who were arrested in Hockley County during a massive drug bust.

Federal agents arrest two Hockley County sheriff's deputies and 26 other people on Friday.  A Lubbock federal grand jury accuses them of running a drug ring.  

Among those arrested was Hockley County Chief Deputy Gordon Bohannon. Bohannon and four other defendants went before a federal judge Friday for their initial appearance.

Bohannon faces 11 felony charges (not including a property forfeiture) including a count of "convicted felon in possession of a firearm."  Bohannon has not yet been convicted but the indictment claims he helped convicted felon Bobby Froman possess firearms as part of the drug ring.
