After a three day search, the Pct. 4 Constable’s Office captured fugitive Johnny Lee “Buzzard” Walley, Jr., 39, of Houston at a home in Harris County near the Montgomery County line.

When Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden and his officers searched the residence, “Buzzard” was nested in some insulation in the attic. He remained still, but the sheetrock beneath him did not, giving way and dropping Walley through the ceiling into the master bedroom where he was taken into custody and returned to the Montgomery County Jail, charged with bond forfeiture.

“The buzzard fell from his nest and we put him a cage,” Constable Hayden said.

Walley gained notoriety last November when he unleashed a Pit Bull Terrier on Pct. 4 officers as they conducted an unrelated investigation at a home located at 17615 White Oak Drive near FM 1485 in Grangerland. The dog lunged at Chief Deputy Barry Welch, who had to use deadly force to stop the attack.

At that time, Walley was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a public servant; felony possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine); and hindering apprehension or prosecution of a known felon. Walley was later released on bond, but failed to appear in court as scheduled and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

The search for Walley included multiple locations, where Pct. 4 officers arrested nine of his friends on outstanding warrants, drug possession charges and resisting arrest.
