4/6/2016 around 9:30pm, a Pct. 4 deputy stopped a vehicle for several traffic offenses southbound on Highway 59, north of FM 1485 in New Caney, TX. As the deputy was conducting the traffic stop, a female, later identified as the owner of the bar, Sandra Young pulled up and started to yell at the subjects in the vehicle. She advised the deputy the subjects in the car caused a fight at her bar and robbed one of the patrons at Bokeeters Bar located at 18110 Hwy 59s New Caney, TX 77357.
Several other Pct. 4 deputies then arrived on scene. It was discovered that Horace Lacy 10/6/67 from Splendora, TX and Thomas Walsh 7/1/68 from Gloucester, MA got into a fight with a bar patron, and at one point, one of the two suspects pulled a knife and held it to the complainant’s throat, the other just brandishing the knife. According to the victim, items were taken from his wallet and then suspects fled the area.
It was mere coincidence that the Pct. 4 deputy was in the area and witnessed a traffic offense and stopped the vehicle. Both suspects were arrested for alleged aggravated robbery, a 1st degree felony.
