Sheriff Campbell added, “Here we have an individual, Dorey Jarvis Joyner, who has a lengthy criminal history, and is a convicted felon. He has pending serious felony drug charges along with a Habitual Felon charge from 2017, he is out on bond for these charges. He was arrested again in April of this year on more drug charges. He was issued a 100,000.00 dollars secured bond on those charges. He gets released, and is arrested again within a month on more felony drug charges.
