Anthony Jared Brooks, 20, of Harrisonburg, Louisiana is charged with Money Laundering, more than $1,500, less than $20,000 (SJF). Deputy Juan Chapa arrested Brooks around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning in the 12000 block of Hwy 59 northbound, which is in Splendora. Deputy Chapa stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation and Brooks was one of four occupants. The driver said the group spent the night at a friend’s house and they were headed home to Louisiana. The four appeared nervous and had conflicting stories regarding their trip. A search of the vehicle revealed two hidden bags containing a total of over $8,700. Porter, the Precinct 4 K-9 Unit trained in narcotics detection gave a positive alert on the bags and money. Initially, none of the occupants claimed ownership, but Brooks eventually did so.
