“Men in Black” bust “Man in Black”

…and a couple of his friends

APOSTOLO.ADAMFriday, members of the Precinct 4 Constable’s Office, a.k.a. “Men in Black,” received an anonymous tip that Davinda Yvonne Shelton, who lives at 17619 White Oak Drive, had an active felony bond forfeiture warrant. The information was confirmed, and deputies proceeded to the location, off of FM 1485 near Grangerland.

Pct. 4 Deputy Constable’s arrived at the home at 8:25 p.m., knocked on the door and announced themselves as law enforcement. At first, the deputies got no response, but they could hear plenty of movement from inside the house. Eventually, a white male opened the door. Ironically, he was wearing a t-shirt with the words “Man in Black” on the bottom.

The “men in black” asked the “man in black” if anyone else was inside and he said there was only his girlfriend. He was identified as Adam Apostolo, Jr. His girlfriend finally entered the front hallway, and was identified as Amanda McDowell. Both said no one else was in the residence.

While searching for the suspect, deputies saw, in plain view, several clear plastic bags, typical of those used in illegal drug transactions. The bags contained a crystal-like residue that field tested positive for methamphetamine.

While searching the living room, deputies discovered Davinda Shelton was in the house after all. Shelton was hiding behind an entertainment center that held a large television. She was taken into custody and her warrant was confirmed. All three were arrested.

Davinda Yvonne Shelton, 45, is charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, Penalty Group 1 (less than 1 gram) and one outstanding felony warrant. She is held without bond.

Amanda Lou McDowell, 27, of Conroe is charged with Hinder Apprehension of a Felon; Possession of a Controlled Substance, Penalty Group 1 (less than 1 gram); and two outstanding felony warrants for Bond Forfeiture and Bail Jumping. She is also currently held without bond.

Adam Apostolo, Jr., 27, of Houston is charged with Hinder Apprehension of a Felon; Possession of a Controlled Substance, Penalty Group 1 (less than 1 gram). He is held on bonds totaling $4,500.

Pct. 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden praised the person who anonymously provided the information that led to the arrests.

“It’s always helpful when the community works with law enforcement to take criminals off our streets,” Constable Hayden said. “This tipster didn’t want recognition or reward money. They just did the right thing and we hope this will serve as an example to others.”
