The mother of missing Texas cheerleader Hailey Dunn was arrested Thursday on three misdemeanor charges after police say she lied to officers attempting to serve a search warrant on her boyfriend.
Billie Jean Dunn appeared in court Friday morning for arraignment on charges of hindering a prosecution, false reporting to a police officer and possession of a dangerous drug, and a judge set her bond at $6,500.
According to CNN affiliate KTAB, authorities obtained search warrants for the home of person of interest Shawn Adkins’ grandmother in Scurry County, Texas and for Adkins’ body. When they went to Dunn’s house to execute the warrant for Adkins, who was her boyfriend and the last person known to have seen
Hailey alive before she was reported missing on December 27, she allegedly lied to officers about where he was.
The drug charge was reportedly related to prescription medication obtained without a proper prescription.
The judge who issued the warrant for Adkins’ body declined to release any additional information about what authorities were looking for or why.
KTAB reported that Dunn posted bond Friday afternoon.
