A former candidate for Grimes County commissioner is in trouble with the law. Lonnie Turner, Jr. was arrested for theft Wednesday morning at his family-owned funeral home in Navasota.
The warrant was issued by the Edna police department. Few details are available other than Edna police asked Navasota police to take Turner into custody.
After being booked into the Grimes County jail, he was released on bond. Turner lost to incumbent Julian Melchor for Precinct 3 commissioner in the March 4 Democratic Primary.
