Local businessman back in jail

HUMBLE- An East Montgomery County resident and business owner arrested on felony drug charges last week was again arrested late Tuesday afternoon in Harris County, by the Montgomery County Pct. 4 Constable’s Office.

Michael Glenn Anderson, 44, of New Caney is now charged with money laundering greater than $200,000, which is a first-degree felony.


That charge is in addition to the previous charge of first-degree felony possession of a controlled substance (cocaine). Each of the two charges is punishable by life in prison, or a term of five to 99 years.

A warrant was issued three days ago, but investigators say Anderson was nowhere to be found. Pct. 4 officers began searching, and located him on Tuesday at the Executive Suites located at 17110 Highway 59, south of Rankin Road in the Humble area.

Pct. 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden said he was proud of his officers for their tenacious and successful search for the suspect.

“After an intense manhunt, lasting three days, we were able to locate the suspect at a hotel in the Humble area,” Hayden said.

Anderson’s was also cited for possession of drug paraphernalia after a search of his hotel room.

The suspect and the sleep deprived officers looked tired as they walked from the hotel room to the patrol vehicle to transport Anderson to jail in Conroe. At one point, he was smiling and seemed to be joking with the officers.

Hayden said he was grateful to District Attorney Brett Ligon for his assistance with the case.

As of Wednesday morning, Anderson remained in the Montgomery County Jail and no bond amount was set.
