Kenneth Turner

A drug dealer was sentenced to 15 years in prison in Bell County district court earlier this week.

Kenneth Graylin Turner, 22, of Temple, was found guilty June 3 on a charge of possession of cocaine with intent to deliver 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams, a first-degree felony.

Turner was sentenced Monday, according to Bell County Prosecutors. Turner was arrested in October 2012 when Killeen police found him in possession of a variety of drugs.

According to an arrest affidavit, police found 2.5 grams or marijuana, a partially smoked marijuana cigarette, 3.4 grams of the prescription painkiller hydrocodone, 0.4 grams of powder cocaine and 9.2 grams of crack cocaine.

The arrest affidavit stated that most of the drugs were found inside Turner’s car.

But police also said they found about 8 grams of crack in Turner’s anus during a strip search at Killeen City Jail.

Turner has been in jail since he was arrested, according to Bell County Jail records. On Tuesday, the Bell County District attorney’s office said Turner is still facing other pending drug charges.
