Probation visit yields multiple felony charges
Two Clarendon residents are facing multiple felony charges after a drug bust here last Wednesday.
David Burrow, 29, was already on probation for Possession and Transporting Anhydrous Ammonia when adult probation officer Mark C. White visited his home accompanied by Donley County Sheriff Butch Blackburn October 21.
Blackburn said that during the visit, it became apparent that illegal drug activity was going on. A search of Burrow’s home and garage revealed an air tank that had been converted to hold anhydrous ammonia and also turned up methamphetamines and crack cocaine.
Burrow and his companion, 39-year-old Dondra Simpson, were arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance and booked into the Donley County Jail.
Authorities then searched a storage facility rented by Burrows and discovered another container and some anhydrous ammonia.
Burrow and Simpson were both arraigned last Friday by Judge Connie Havens. Burrow faces two first degree felony charges of Possession of Controlled Substance as well as two felony counts of Possession or
Transportation of Certain Chemicals with Intent to Manufacture Controlled Substances. His bond was set at $200,000.
Simpson was charged with two first degree felony counts of Possession of Controlled Substance, and her bond was set at $100,000.
Also working on this case were Donley County Chief Deputy Randy Bond and Deputies Mike Spier, Sonny Morasco, and Kelly Hill; Gray County Deputies Carey Rushing and Lynn Hudson; and Panhandle Police Officer Tanner Blackburn.
Both Burrow and Simpson were still in custody at press time.
