A federal grand jury has indicted four East Texans accused of distributing methamphetamines in East Texas.

Horace “Buster The Don” Grely Dean, 38, of Tyler, James “Squirt” Barnard Thacker, 36, of Alto, Shedrick “Shaky” Lashae Donnell, 36, of Jacksonville, and John “Trey” Trevor Evans, 38, of Kemp, are named in a 10-count indictment filed on Wednesday.

Dean, Thacker, and Evans are each being housed in the Gregg County Jail. Records show Donnell has posted a $5,000 bond.

The indictment does not list which counties the meth was distributed but that it happened in the Eastern District of Texas.

Count one of the indictment states the quartet distributed meth dating back to September 2016. The other counts name the defendants individually with separate drug and gun charges.

All four are scheduled for arraignments on Feb. 26 in the Tyler federal courthouse.
