The Mitchell County District Attorney's Office says they went to Billie Dunn's Colorado City home to carry out a search warrant on her longtime boyfriend, Shawn Adkins. During the search, law enforcement said Dunn lied to them. She was taken into custody and interrogated at the Mitchell County Law Enforcement Center Thursday evening.
Shortly before 10 p.m., KTAB's Michelle Ashworth learned Dunn had been charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution, possession of dangerous drugs and false report to a police officer.
We're told the drugs in question were prescription drugs without a proper prescription.
The search warrant that originally brought law enforcement to Dunn's home came from Howard County. The warrant was for a search of Shawn Adkins' body.
Scurry County also served a search warrant Thursday at the home of Adkins' grandmother's in Dunn, Texas.
The arrests don't seem to have any connection with Hailey's disappearance and don't bring law enforcement any closer to finding the missing girl.
Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins have both been named "persons of interest" in Hailey disappearance. Adkins is the only named suspect in the case.
Earlier this year, law enforcement revealed child pornography was discovered in connection with the case. Pornography was found in the Big Spring home of Adkins' mother as well as one a jump drive in Dunn's home. Authorities say there was child porn on a computer seized in Big Spring. Billie Dunn says investigators told her there was no child pornography discovered on the jump drive taken from her home.
Hailey reportedly disappeared from her Colorado City home on December 27, 2010.
