A man arrested and jailed on a felony drug charge Saturday was released on bail but was booked in at the same jail about an hour later.
Gulfport police arrested Mark Anthony Rogers, 19, Saturday on a marijuana possession charge. He posted a $50,000 bond to leave the Harrison County jail.
He’d been released about an hour when a bail bond agent surrendered him and he was booked back in at the jail, the jail docket shows. A bail bond agent who held bonds on Rogers’ pending felony charges of drive-by shooting and marijuana possession surrendered his bonds.
It wasn’t the first time a bail bond company has turned him back over to the jail.
