BOSTON -- A Boston woman released on bond after an April drug arrest was arrested again last week is out of jail again.

Tora McCray, 26, 365 Oak Ridge Ave., Boston, was charged with cocaine possession with intent to distribute last month when a search warrant was executed at her residence.

Boston police, assisted by Thomas County/Thomasville Narcotics/Vice Division agents, found four to five grams of cocaine at McCray's residence April 11. She was released on a $12,000 bond.

On Thursday, Boston police charged McCray with two counts of sale of cocaine. She has been released from the Thomas County Jail, this time on a $4,000 bond.

Boston police have been conducting a drug investigation for about three months.

Also on Thursday, police and Thomas County Sheriff's Department deputies arrested Namion Booker, 26, 223 Garnett St., Boston. Charged with two counts of cocaine sale and two counts of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a public park, Booker was released on an $8,000 bond.

Boston police Chief Chuck Weaver said Carson Morrison, 54, 215 Siloan St., Morven, was charged with cocaine possession during a Boston traffic stop. Morrison was released on a $3,500 bond.

Boston resident Billy Everett, 29, 336A U.S. 84 East, remained in jail Tuesday in lieu of a $5,500 bond on a charge of cocaine possession.

Weaver said an investigation is continuing into drug-dealing in Boston.

"It's no more than anywhere else," the chief said about Boston drug activity, "but we're trying to keep it under control."

Because of more complaints from the citizenry about the activity and more drug use, the probe has been stepped up this year, Weaver explained.
