On Wednesday, August 31, 2011, around 3:30 p.m. Cleveland Police Department’s Patrol Captain Scott Felts stopped a 2002 Ford F-150 pickup in the 1100 block of Houston Street after observing the driver commit a traffic violation.

The female driver was identified as Victoria Lanette Hamilton, age 32, from Hardin, Texas.

Felts requested her driver’s license; which she was unable to provide. Officers K. Cumbie and Sergeant Paul Lowrey both arrived on scene shortly thereafter. Sergeant Lowrey observed an unusual bulge under Hamilton’s shirt near her waist line area. Officer Cumbie checked the bulge for officer safety and retrieved a small pink and black case.

Inside the case were several small plastic baggies which contained a crystal like substance which was believed to be Methamphetamine. After being placed in handcuffs Hamilton became combative and had to be physically placed in the backseat of a police car.

While officers were conducting a search of Hamilton’s truck another small black case was found containing syringes, several empty plastic baggies, and a digital scale. Continued search of the vehicle revealed another plastic baggie wedged between the driver’s seat and the center console which also contained a crystal like substance believed to Methamphetamine.

While officers were collecting evidence from Hamilton’s vehicle, Hamilton was able to manipulate the handcuffs from behind her back and escape from the patrol car out a back window. Officers gave chase across Houston Street where Hamilton was taken into custody without further incident.

Hamilton was transported to the Cleveland Police Department’s jail and charged with:

1) Possession of a Controlled Substance- State Jail Felony, Bond was set at $10,000

2) Escape While Arrested/ Confined- Third Degree Felony, Bond was set at $12,000
