A Central Texas couple was arraigned on the charge of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance 4 grams or more, but less than 200 grams by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke on Friday.

Christopher Maurice Johnson, 19, of Temple, and Kaitlyn Marie Scott, 19, of Killeen, were being held in the Bell County jail after police arrested them Nov. 30.

Police executed a search warrant at an apartment in the 1900 block of North Fourth Street. There, officers found 68 grams of crack cocaine in plain view, according to an affidavit for arrest.

Scott was found hiding in a closet, according to police, and after her arrest, she told police she and Johnson, her boyfriend, sold drugs from the apartment.

While some officers searched the apartment, another officer stopped a vehicle that Johnson was riding in, according to the affidavit.

He was arrested on the spot, and later told police in a recorded interview that the cocaine belonged to him, according to the affidavit for arrest, and that he sold it for other people and made about $40 in profit on the sale.

The substance found tested positive for cocaine with a field testing kit, police said.

Johnson was being held in the Bell County Jail on $75,000 bond.

Scott was being held in the Bell County Jail on $50,000 bond.

In an unrelated case, Christina Lynn Hammett, 27, was arraigned on a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm. She was being held in the Bell County Jail on $52,000 total bond.

Please don't engage in criminal activity. A life of crime only leads to remorse, sadness, disappointment, poverty, and despair. Once you venture into the fast, but dead end known as crime, arrests, detention, jail and/or prison will soon follow. Once the indelible stain of a conviction smears your once pristine name, the spiral into loneliness, depression, and recidivism are sure to follow. It isn't hard to obey their laws. If you've become uncivilized stop and get your life back on track. You can begin the changes needed to heal yourself. You can make things better, but you must stop making them worse.
