Hutch Man Makes Court Appearance On Drug Charges

Posted 2 years ago

A 36-year-old Hutchinson man who has served time in prison for drugs finds himself in trouble again.

Graham Taylor II, is charged with possession of prescription drugs with intent to distribute, possession of a precursor to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Taylor in court told Magistrate Judge Randy McEwen that he didn’t have any precursor for making drugs. The judge then stated in court that he had 13-lithium batteries in his possession at the time of his arrest. He claims that were from old cell phones, and says you would need to be a chemist to figure out how to get the lithium from them.

He also allegedly had five different kinds of prescription drugs on him, four syringes and 11 small baggies.

The arrest coming Saturday and bond was set at 55-hundred dollars. Assistant District Attorney Andrew Davidson told the court, he thought the bond should stay where it is saying, it might actually be to low.

The state has also filed a motion to revoke probation for a misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia conviction. If that happens, he would have to serve 90-days. Bond in that case set at 250-dollars.

Taylor will be back in court of Wednesday.

He has served time for being in possession of drugs for a case going back to 2008, and was discharged from the conviction in March of 2010.

    Seems like rather weak evidence.
