New felony charges for convicted felon on probation
A convicted felon out of jail on probation is in trouble again. On Wednesday, Franklin Police Officers arrested 22-year-old Dej-Avery Williams, of Franklin, for Felony Drug Possession, Felony Evading, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Simple Possession, and Driving on a Suspended License.
Williams was wanted for fleeing from officers during an unrelated incident in February. When officers spotted him sitting in a parked car on Wednesday, they found marijuana, multiple plastic bags, and a digital scale in Williams’ vehicle.
Williams has been released from jail on the $18,000 bond set by the Magistrate. He is due in court on April 4 at 1:00 pm.
