On September 8, 2021, at about 2:15 PM, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a robbery in progress at the Camden Spring Apartments located at 301 Pruitt Road in Spring, Texas. During the investigation, it was learned two black males entered an apartment with handguns but the suspects were no longer at the apartment when Deputies arrived.
Deputies viewed surveillance camera footage where they gathered the description of the suspects. With Montgomery County Sheriff’s K-9 and Precinct 3 Constables assisting a black male who matched the description was detained after a foot pursuit. The second suspect was not found. During the investigation, it was learned there was possibly a large number of drugs in the apartment. Detectives with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office responded to assist with the investigation.
Detectives obtained a search warrant for the apartment which led to the recovery of numerous items including large quantities of Ecstasy, Xanax, THC, Marijuana, multiple other prescription medications, 3 firearms, and over $18,000 in U.S. currency.
The robbery suspect was identified as Richard Nolan (22 years old), who was out on bond for Murder in Harris County; however, the bond was revoked due to non-compliance. Nolan was arrested for the bond revocation warrant and transported to the Montgomery County Jail where he was additionally charged with Aggravated Robbery. The residents, identified as Dillan Thompson (24 years old) and Brianna Loucks (21 years old), were arrested and transported to the Montgomery County Jail where they were charged with Manufacturing and Delivery of a Controlled Substance.
This is an excellent example of the different divisions within the Sheriff’s Office working together to keep our neighborhoods safer. Great job and thank you to all involved!
This is another example of Harris County bonding violent offenders. On April 13, 2019, Nolan and Gary Logan shot Deverrick Goodin multiple times at 7315 Parkes in Houston. The victim was in the shower when the pair forced their way into the bathroom and escorted him to the living room still naked. As they forced him to sit on the couch, Nolan shot him multiple times. Nolan was arrested and charged with murder. Nolan had priors from a juvenile when he was involved in a Conroe Robbery and harassment of a public servant in Giddings, Texas while incarcerated in a juvenile facility. Prosecutors asked for a $100,000 bond. A public defender asked for a $50,000 bond. However, Magistrate Lionel Castro set it at no bail. A little over a year later Nolan wrote Judge Hilary Unger asking for a lower bond. Two months later Nolan was given a $150,000 bond and released from the Harris County Jail. However, before the month was out Nolan failed to abide by the curfew requirement of the bond on multiple occasions.
On June 30, 2021, the Judge in the 248th District Court of Harris County revoked the bond and issued a warrant for Nolan’s arrest. Then in August his attorney W. Jay Dedrick III asked the Judge to release him from representing Nolan as he was unable to communicate with him to properly defend him.
It was not until last Wednesday when he fled the apartment and was captured by Montgomery County Deputies.
