By Chief Deputy Barry Welch
No Dl, No Insurance, No Way
While patrolling the streets of East Montgomery County and serving civil citations, several traffic stops were conducted that resulted in four vehicles being towed in the East Montgomery County annex area after the drivers were unable to produce auto insurance and a driver’s license.
27 JP 4 warrants were cleared up after five people were arrested by Pct. 4 Deputies for outstanding JP 4 warrants; each person had several warrants each. This office received 308 new JP 4 warrants last week. Other police agencies cleared up 14 JP 4 warrants from several arrest. 36 warrants were recalled.
Sex Offender Compliance Deputy
Pct. 4 Sex Offender Compliance Deputy R. Ford discovered that a sex offender in East Montgomery County had an active warrant for civil contempt of court (no bond), while doing routine sex offender checks. The 26-year-old male identified as Evan Hunter of Conroe was arrested and transported to the Montgomery county Jail in Conroe.
Neighborhood Narcotics Patrol
Last week we reported nearly an identical case of narcotics being thrown from a vehicle. On May 2 around 6 p.m. Deputy Bergland noticed a blue car driving in a Porter neighborhood. This vehicle failed to stop at a stop sign. Deputy Bergland attempted to conduct a traffic stop. The vehicle did not stop right away. During this time Deputy Bergland noticed the driver throw narcotics from the vehicle. The vehicle stopped. The driver was identified as 31-year-old Frederick Owens of Porter. The narcotics were recovered (crack cocaine) and placed into evidence. Frederick was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and tampering with evidence both charges are a felony. He was transported to the Montgomery County Jail.
After returning from the jail, on May 3 at about 1:30 am Deputy Bergland began to patrol around the Porter business area (Hwy 59 near FM 1314). He saw a green car violate several traffic laws. A traffic stop was conducted. The driver was identified as 35-year-old Wendy Hurst of Porter. She was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. A passenger in the same vehicle thought she had a warrant out for her arrest in Polk County, so she gave a false name. After further investigation Deputy Bergland obtained the true identity of this white female. She was identified as 38-year-old Kelly Turner of Porter. She was arrested for fail to identify. Both were transported to the Montgomery county Conroe Jail.
