LEVELLAND TX (KCBD) - At least 20 defendants in a major drug ring have a date in court Monday morning. Court records accuse Bobby Duwayne Froman of running an outlaw motorcycle gang and a methamphetamine drug ring. Froman has waived his right to a detention hearing, so it's likely the judge will order him stay in jail between now and the trial.
Meanwhile, we continue to wait for word of Gordon Bohannon's fate. He's the former Chief Deputy of Hockley County who is accused of helping Froman. A federal magistrate ruled he could be released on bond, but prosecutors appealed to Federal Judge Sam Cummings, and court records do not yet reflect his decision.
Most of the defendants were arrested in the July 10th drug bust.
