Caught w/ Crack, Headed Back…

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX- On Friday, Deputies with Pct. 5 Constable Chris Jones’s Office conducted a traffic stop in the 15500 block of Longneck Drive. The driver, Robert Higginbotham, allegedly had crack cocaine in his possession. A check of his ID through Dispatch revealed he had an active felony Parole Warrant (sometimes called a “blue warrant”) for Driving While Intoxicated 3rd or More. The Deputies arrested him and transported him to the Montgomery County Jail in Conroe for booking.

Robert Mark Higginbotham, 51, of Magnolia is charged with second-degree felony Possession of a Controlled Substance, Penalty Group 1/1-B, more than 4 grams, but less than 200 grams; and a felony Parole Violation Warrant. His bond on the drug charge was set at $40,000. That case is assigned to the 9th District Court of Judge Phil Grant.

Public records show Higginbotham has multiple prior arrests in Harris County, which are mostly for Driving While Intoxicated. His first DWI 3rd or More conviction occurred in Harris County back in 1999. It appears the current warrant for parole violation is connected with an August 2022 Harris County court case in which he pleaded guilty to DWI 3rd or More, in exchange for a three-year TDCJ sentence, from which he was already paroled. Shockingly, another stipulation of the deal Higginbotham’s attorney secured for him with Harris County ensured his Driver’s License wouldn’t be suspended. It’s highly unlikely the repeat offender will be able to make such an easy plea deal on the Montgomery County charge.
