A woman’s bond has been revoked on charges alleging she enticed three juveniles to help rob her ex-boyfriend.

Tazamisha Zipporah Lee, 44, had been free on bond since she and the teens were arrested in the Feb. 23 robbery.

Now she’s accused of selling hydrocodone twice in recent weeks, police Sgt. Damon McDaniel said.

A judge revoked Lee’s bond on the February charges after Gulfport police arrested her on the drug charges Monday.

‘There they were’

Gulfport police had arrested Lee on Feb. 24 after her ex-boyfriend reported she and three teens showed up at his house and robbed him of personal property, McDaniel said.

The man lives in the 1500 block of 20th Street.

“The man said he opened the door and there they were,” McDaniel said.

Police arrested Lee on charges of robbery and directing juveniles to commit a felony.

The youths, all younger than 17, were each arrested on a robbery charge. They were taken to the Harrison County Youth Detention Center for prosecution in Youth Court.

Lee is held at the Harrison County jail.

She has a $50,000 bond on the drug charges. She is not eligible to post bail because of the previous charges.

The robbery case has been turned over for review by a Harrison County grand jury.

Other arrests

Gulfport police have arrested Lee at least two other times.

She was arrested on a grand larceny charge in 2014. A grand jury found insufficient evidence to indict her.

Police arrested her in March 2015 on misdemeanor charges of shoplifting and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. How those charges were resolved wasn’t immediately available.
