Aaron Veyon was being held for weapons under disability, trafficking in drugs, and 3 counts of felony drug possession.
Cole Taylor was being held for receiving stolen property and tampering with evidence.
Roy Agin was being held for falsification, escape, and failure to appear. Agin’s current charge of escape stems from him not appearing at a parole hearing.
