Just after 10 am Monday a DPS Trooper attempted to stop a Chevrolet truck on FM 2090 near Fire Tower Road. The driver sped up and drove east on FM 2090 to Dodd Road where he turned northbound to Pruett. After passing his home on Pruett, he crashed through a gate of private property and continued westbound crossing Spring Branch Creek. He continued a short distance where he stopped and fled into the woods with a black and white dog. The male identified as Gary Wayne Sala (DOB 8/4/69). A DPS helicopter assisted Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office K-9 and deputies in the manhunt through the woods. Splendora and Precinct 4 also assisted. Sala was last seen crossing under the FM 2090 bridge at Spring Branch. He was wearing tennis shoes and black pants. His black shirt was found in the creek. DPS Troopers recovered drugs from his vehicle before impounding it. The active search was halted due to the heat taking it’s toll on searchers and dog. If you have information on this suspect contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office or Crime Stoppers.
