Just after midnight last Thursday, Montgomery County Precinct 4 Deputies stopped a blue pickup truck on FM 1485 near Linda Lane. After running James Michael Lillie, 24,of Cleveland it was found he had open warrants for probation violations in both San Jacinto and Liberty Counties. Lillie was cuffed, but as one of the deputies started to place the hand cuffed prisoner in the patrol car, he broke into a run and fled.
Montgomery County Precinct 4 Blood Hound “Oliver” tracked the suspect into the woods and back to FM 1485. That’s when one of the deputies spotted the suspect next to a barn along FM 1485. He was taken into custody.
In addition to his probation violations, he now faces felony escape charges.
