Timothy Wayne Sherber was found guilty Thursday afternoon by jurors in the 359th District Court with Judge Kathleen Hamilton presiding. Sherber was the driver in the February 11, 2008 incident in which Montgomery County SIU Detectives met Sherber and Rodney Anderson of Fairfield, Texas in the parking lot of the Taco Cabana at South Loop 336 and Interstate 45 for a drug transaction.
Just after officers were signaled to converge on the area Sherber attempted to flee in his pickup. He jumped a curb, hit an unmarked unit, accelerated and struck another unmarked unit and then rammed a marked sheriff’s patrol unit that tried to block his path.
Shots were fired at the suspects at that point as the truck headed directly at an undercover officer attempting to arrest him. Sherber was grazed by a bullet fired by officers and was treated and released by Conroe Regional Hospital to the custody of the Sheriff’s Department.
The MCSO Special Investigations Unit seized 3 ounces of methamphetamine and $3,255, which was in Anderson’s possession.
Many friends and family members testified Thursday including his pastor.
The punishment phase will resume Friday morning.
