The Kerrville Police officer accused of lying in an affidavit revolving around a 2019 Kerrville drug bust is no longer employed by the City of Kerrville, according to Kerrville Police Department Sgt. Jonathon Lamb.
Lamb said in a statement February 4, which referred to the departure of Sgt. Jaiman Yarbrough’s departure, that the “nature of his separation is an internal personnel matter.”
Yarbrough and two other KPD officers conducted a “knock and talk investigation” at the apartment of Codie May after receiving numerous reports about possible illegal drug use occurring from inside the home.
Upon the officer’s arrival, Yarbrough, allegedly, claimed he saw illegal drug paraphernalia from his vantage point while standing in the doorway, which prompted a search of May’s home.
Ultimately, police discovered trace amounts of drugs and allegedly witnessed May attempting to dispose of a substance down her bathroom sink.
After the suspect’s arrest and indictment on felony-related drug-possession charges, the other two KPD officers at the scene went on record saying that they were not sure Yarbrough could have seen the drugs from where he was standing before entering the home.
Both KPD officers on the scene that day with Yarbrough, John Latham and Jeff Purvis, no longer work for the Kerrville Police Department.
The prosecutor in this particular case has dropped the charges against May and the case was formally dismissed in September 2020.
An investigation regarding Yarbrough is ongoing and being conducted by The Texas Rangers.
May is currently in prison after pleading guilty in January to using an elderly person’s debit card without consent. She has been sentenced to three years and ordered to pay $700 restitution to the victim.
