NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - After getting out of jail on a bond usually reserved for misdemeanor crimes, the Nacogdoches Sheriff's Office has re-arrested a couple charged with dealing meth out of their home after a district judge increased their bond.
Sheriff Thomas Kerss said Glenda Hanna, 48, and Marc Hanna, 54, of Nacogdoches, were released from the Nacogdoches County Jail on Friday on $1,500 bonds each, which Justice of the Peace David Perkins set.
The married couple were arrested early Friday morning on first-degree felonies of delivery of a controlled substance following a months-long investigation to their alleged dealing of meth out of their homes.
Kerss said when someone is booked into the jail, they are allowed to make two calls each. Marc Hanna made just one call, to Perkins, who Hanna knew.
Kerss said Perkins set the bond, which is an automatic amount for misdemeanor crimes, and they booked out of the jail on the same day.
Kerss said he asked the district attorney's office to file a motion to find the bond insufficient. He said District Judge Ed Klein set the bonds on Tuesday; $100,000 for Marc Hanna and $200,000 for Glenda Hanna, and ordered them to be re-arrested.
Deputies arrested the pair on Tuesday afternoon, Kerss said.
Kerss said Glenda Hanna's bond was higher because of a longer criminal record, including a conviction for jumping bond.
