LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) - Livingston Police officers arrested a man and a woman and charged them with felony child endangerment charges on Wednesday after the officers went to serve a search warrant on their residence and allegedly found Ecstasy and Hydrocodone on the floor near a small child.
Charles Lamar Bogany, 41, and Kerry Bogany Johnson are both still being held in the Polk County Jail on a state-jail endangering a child charge. Bogany was also charged with a third-degree felony possession of a controlled substance between 3 and 28 grams, a state-jail felony possession of a controlled substance less than 1 gram, and a misdemeanor possession of synthetic marijuana charge.
Johnson's bail has been set at $10,000. No bail has been set for Bogany's charges yet.
According to Detective Marty Drake, the Livingston Police Department got word of illegal narcotic sales being conducted from a house in the 1500 block of South Houston Ave. When the LPD officers went to the residence and contacted Bogany and Johnson about the complaint, they detected a strong odor of marijuana wafting from inside the home.
After the officers were denied permission to enter the residence, a search warrant was obtained. The subsequent search of the home revealed synthetic marijuana, Ecstasy pills, and Hydrocodone. Drake said the Ecstasy pills and Hydrocodone were found on the floor near a small child.
Bogany and Johnson were arrested at the scene and transported to the Polk County Jail.
