61 Felony Arrests Were Made In Gregg County Last Week
Nearly half of the arrests made in Gregg County, Texas last week (Monday, April 10 to Sunday, April 16, 2023) lead to at least one felony charge for those being arrested. Nearly 130 individuals were booked into the Gregg County Jail on a misdemeanor charge, or a felony charge, or were being held on some kind of detainer after having interactions with law enforcement.
Law enforcement agencies from across the county, including Longview, Kilgore and Gladewater police departments, along with the Gregg County Sheriff's office and other agencies from around the region, including, Smith County, Rusk County, Cherokee, County, and Dallas County sheriff's offices were involved in the apprehension of some of these suspects. In addition to those agencies, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice was also involved in arresting some individuals.
The usual felony charges are here again.
Manufacture, sale, or possession of illegal drugs and substances, DWI of 3rd case or more and unlawful carry of a weapon by a felon. Felony charges we rarely see popped up last week in Gregg County, including:
- organized criminal activity
- being a fugitive
- arson to a house of worship
- INS detainer
- US Marshal detainer
All information has been provided by the Gregg County Sheriff's Office through an open records search. Looking through the reports, a few felons thought that Gregg County might be a safe place to hide from law enforcement, but that wasn't the case. Fugitives from around the state, as well as St. John Baptist Parish, LA and Las Vegas, NV were arrested last week.
