TRAFFIC STOP LEADS TO MAJOR BURGLARY RING BUST

On Wednesday, August 14, 2019, at about 5:10 PM, Montgomery County Pct. 2 Constable’s Office Lt. W. Gladden made a traffic stop in the 500 block of River Plantation Drive, Conroe, for expired registration. After investigation, charges for possession of controlled substance were filed on the driver.
Lt. Gladden observed the suspect vehicle on Stonewall Jackson Drive, and after checking the displayed Texas license plate, found it to be expired from June of this year. Upon stopping the vehicle in the 500 block of River Plantation Drive, the driver was observed to have a large roll of $100 bills in his lap. The driver was identified by his Texas driver’s license as ERIC CHRISTOPHER GRAFF, W/M 35 YOA from Spring. After receiving consent from GRAFF to search the vehicle, Lt. Gladden found a cloth bag laying on the front seat which contained a substance which field-tested positive for methamphetamine. GRAFF was arrested and booked into the Montgomery County Jail without incident, charged with possession of a controlled substance.
At booking, GRAFF was found to possess more than $9,000 in cash, and six pre-paid debit cards. These items were seized for investigation purposes.
Montgomery County Pct. 2 Constable’s Office Investigator B. Davis spoke with GRAFF and received permission to search his vehicle, and a Kimber pistol was found hidden under the passenger seat. This weapon was later determined to have been stolen in a series of storage building burglaries in Harris County, for which GRAFF is now under investigation for.
On Thursday, August 22, 2019, Inv. Davis arrested GRAFF for possession of the stolen weapon, based upon charges accepted by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office. At the time of his arrest, GRAFF was in possession of more than $8,000 in cash. After booking into the Montgomery County Jail, GRAFF was found to be in possession of Methamphetamine and psychedelic mushrooms, and two additional charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance were added by jail officers.
