OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING IN WEST MONTGOMERY COUNTY

Just before 8:30a.m. this morning a report came into the Sheriff’s Office stating a white male had gone into M N M grocery on FM 1486 and stolen some money out of the cash drawer.
The vehicle description, a silver 2004 Nissan 4 door was the same description as was given at 2:30 am when the Exxon Station at FM1488 and FM 1774 had a donation bottle on the counter for a young Magnolia cancer patient. According to the owner, Eric Saeed stated the jar contained between $700 and $800 dollars.
As multiple Montgomery County units were responding to the scene an off-duty Houston Baptist University police officer in his private vehicle with lights and siren witnessed the robbery ad followed the suspect to Jackson Road where he lost him.

Montgomery Police Officer Sgt. Bobby Bodden who heard the call go out was southbound on FM1486 from 105, as he approached the intersection of Ben Smith he saw the white male fitting the description in the robbery case walking down the road. Spotting Bodden the suspect tried to flee into the woods. The officer confronted the suspect and a struggle ensued. Bodden was tased several times but was able to fire his duty weapon twice striking the suspect in the abdomen.

Both the unidentified suspect and Bodden were transported to Conroe Regional Hospital where many hours later the suspect remained in surgery.

Charges are pending against the suspect.
An identified female was also detained at the scene for questioning.

The vehicle was found on a logging site several hundred yards down Ben Smith. A female at the scene was also detained for questioning.
The Texas Rangers are leading the investigation with the assistance of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.
According to Collin Fernandes the same suspect came into the store back in February when he was on duty. The suspect parked his vehicle between the gas pumps, walked into the store, went back to the restroom. When he exited the restroom he got a bottle of water from the cooler and brought it to the counter to pay for it. When Fernandes opened the cash drawer the suspect reached over, overpowering him and took the money from the drawer.
In either case a weapon was not displayed.
