Sheriffs: Inmate ran drug ring from Hunt County jail

GREENVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – There’s nothing unusual about law enforcement officials investigating a suspected drug ring, but officials in Hunt County soon learned the illegal enterprise under the microscope was as being run out of their own jail.

The investigation began in April when Greenville police officers arrested Bobby Evens on charges of Delivery of a Controlled Substance, Violation of Parole and Child Endangerment.

After Evens was booked into jail a corrections employee noticed the man was having a lot of interaction with another Hunt County Corrections employee. That guard was Evens’s estranged wife, Veda Evens.

    I believe this Law Enforcement Agency is as corrupt as any of the criminals they contact. A Sheriff with a drug ring operating under his very nose, outrageous! The citizens of Hunt County just need to watch those deputies and see where they go, what they do, and who they hang out with to get a good idea of the level of Law Enforcement in that county. I believe there is a direct connection between this agency and the drug dealers. Also, what about the misappropriation of county funds to have his deputies work on Sheriff Meek’s property? Good grief, vote him out of office.
