“SAME MALE WHO BROKE AN OFF-DUTY MCSO DEPUTY’S JAW AFTER A 2016 ROBBERY ATTEMPT”
Monday evening Conroe Police were dispatched to the Walmart Store in Conroe for a shoplifter fighting with loss prevention officers. When they arrived one of the two males ran across the parking lot and jumped into a white Cadillac and fled the scene. Conroe Police gave pursuit. Entering the freeway, the pursuit continued at over 100 mph at times as they crossed into Harris County. Harris County then joined in to assist until they got to the Greenspoint area where Houston Police joined in. It continued down I-45 through downtown Houston to the Gulfgate area at 610 South at the Gulf Freeway. The driver identified as Michael Gene Jones, 18, of 7810 Carolwood in Houston then turned toward Pasadena but continued across the Ship Channel Bridge, running along 610 to Wayside where at times he tried to brake check pursuing units. He then traveled north through several streets until he reached Mesa and Tidwell where he was taken into custody. Jones was returned to Montgomery County to face a Montgomery County Judge which seem much harsher than the Harris County Judicial System. He remains in the Montgomery County Jail on a charge of evading with no bond. His partner in crime identified as Odis Charles Oliver, 36, of 5616 Teague Road in Northwest Houston also remains in the Montgomery County Jail on theft less than $2500 with 2 or more convictions. He is also being held after the judge revoked his bond for a February 2017 charge of possession of a controlled substance. That case has yet to be resolved. He was set to plea the case in December but was then reset until May 8, 2018 in Judge Maginnis Court. The prior convictions of theft move this misdemeanor offense to a felony. He also has no bond. Oliver is also being held after the judge revoked his bond for the attempted robbery of an off-duty Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy at the Summer Hills Food Mart in the 24200 block of Sorters Road. On December 10, 2016 the deputy and his wife were preparing for a hunting trip. The deputy purchased ice and as he was placing it in the ice chest in his truck Jones and another male approached him breaking his jaw and attempting to rob him. The deputy’s wife who had been on the passenger side of the truck drew her hand gun and confronted the suspects who then fled the scene. Jones case was to go to trial on April 2, 2018 but was reset in Judge Hamilton’s Court until May 30, 2018.
