A Killeen man was accused of being in possession of 9 grams of cocaine, according to court documents filed Wednesday.
In August of last year, Killeen police was dispatched to the location of a stolen vehicle and approached Kimani Jamal Osborne on the sidewalk due to him matching the description of the suspect given by a caller who was following the vehicle and providing the police with live updates to the police, according to an arrest warrant filed by Justice of Peace Bill Cooke on Wednesday.
When stopped by the police, Osborne was observed by the police to toss an object into a nearby yard.
The object was a cigarette box that appeared to contain cocaine and other narcotics. The police ran a field test and received a positive result for cocaine, according to the court docment.
When being transported by police, Osborne said that it was his girlfriend that reported the stolen vehicle because she knew that he had “just scored.”
But during a later interview, Osborne changed his story and said that he took the cocaine from his girlfriend to prevent her from using it, police said.
Cooke set Osborne’s bail at $50,000. Osborne was not listed in Bell County Jail late Wednesday.
