You Can Run But You Can’t Hide
During the afternoon of July 13, 2009 Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office received a call from 911 in reference to a theft in progress. A home owner came home and found two men leaving his home with his lawn mower in the back of their truck. The home owner gave chase while talking to the 911 operator on his cell phone.
The crooks made three large mistakes:
Mistake # 1: Taking property from guy with a cell phone in East Montgomery County. The Citizens of East Montgomery County are tired of drug dealers and thieves robbing them blind.
Mistake # 2: The crooks tried to loose the home owner by turning off of the highway and onto a side street. This side street is where the East Montgomery County Law Enforcement Center is located. This is the headquarters of the Montgomery County Pct. 4 Constable’s Office, a sub station of the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), and a substation of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. Next door is the Office of Judge James Metts (JP 4).
Mistake # 3: Trying to hide in some tall grass from a K9 tracking dog with a big since of smell.
A responding Deputy with the Sheriff’s office located the suspect’s vehicle near the Law Enforcement Center and gave chase. Both crooks fled from the vehicle on foot and ran into a wooded area. Eight Constable units responded and seven Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputies responded. A small command center was established. A perimeter was set up using the responding Sheriff Deputies and the Constable Deputies. The Pct. 4 Constable’s Office then called in one of their K9 Deputies. Within minuets the K9 Deputy arrived and unleashed a tracking dog (Zorro). Soon Zorro had a sent and lead Investigator Buck Clendennen, K9 Deputy Drew Sharp (Constable Office) and a Sheriff’s Deputy to the crooks who were trying to hide in the tall weeds in a wooded area. Judge James Metts, Constable Rowdy Hayden and Sergeant Warwick had been searching the wooded area in a 4×4 vehicle. Both crooks were placed into handcuffs and escorted out of the wooded area. Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested both men for evading arrest. The men were identified as Zack Williams and Leland Williams both brothers and both from Huffman. Leland was wanted in Mississippi for Escape from custody and Zack was a wanted person in Texas for a Blue Warrant (parole warrant). The vehicle was towed (pending an auto theft case), the stolen property was given back to the owner. Both men were transported to the Montgomery County Jail. Case closed. It is great to see all Law Enforcement agencies in East Montgomery County work together to do what needs to be done to get the real criminals off the streets and back in jail where they belong.
