The Borger Police Department made two important arrests last Monday, one of which may be leading the department to pursue further charges.
On Monday, April 9, 2012, officers from Borger PD arrested Charles Colby Griffin, 24, of Borger, for an outstanding Randall County warrant. The warrant was for bond surrender for an original charge of possession of a controlled substance, according to Lt. Anthony Griffin of the BPD.
While officers were serving the arrest warrant on Griffin, an incident arose that led to him also being charged with tampering with physical evidence, a felony of the third degree. During his arrest, officers also arrested Shalynn Breaan Aiken, 18, of Borger, for the offense of possession of marijuana (less than two ounces), as well as tampering with physical evidence.
Lt. Griffin said that officers later found that Griffin had failed to identify as a fugitive from justice during a traffic stop made earlier this month. Additional charges of failure to identify as a fugitive from justice stemming from this traffic stop will be pursued by the department.
Both Griffin and Aiken were transported to the Borger Police Department where they were processed and incarcerated in the City of Borger Jail Facility. Bonds on Griffin totaled $45,000 and bonds on Aiken totaled $21,500.
