In a concerted effort, the Union County Sheriff’s Office, El Dorado Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigations arrested an El Dorado woman on 10 drug-related charges Wednesday morning. In Union County District Court she was later issued a $1 million cash only bond (a rarity even in Van Hook’s courtroom).
The UCSO and EPD also picked up an El Dorado man Wednesday morning for six drug-related charges including endangering the welfare of his three minor children, all between the ages 7 and 11. He was later given a $20,000 cash or corporate surety bond.
