Montgomery County Pct. 2 Constable’s Office Discovers Crashed Vehicle is Stolen

On Sunday, November 18, 2018, Deputy Torres responded to a one vehicle crash on Whipporwill Road. While en route to the scene, Deputy Torres was advised by MCSO Dispatch that the driver of the single vehicle had fled the scene, but a description was provided by witnesses.

During the crash investigation, Deputy Torres noted that the ignition system of the pickup had been altered so that no key was needed to start and drive the vehicle – this is consistent with a stolen vehicle. However, when checking the truck through NCIC/TCIC database, no stolen information was found.

Soon after starting his investigation, the driver returned to the scene. His appearance matched exactly with the descriptions provided by witnesses earlier. The driver was identified as HECTOR RONEY DERAS-FUENTES, 25. Upon questioning, DERAS-FUENTES stated he had borrowed the truck from a friend, and confirmed that he didn’t need a key to operate the truck.

While still on the scene, Deputy Torres was notified by MCSO Dispatch that the Conroe Police Department was now taking a stolen vehicle report on this pickup. Deputy Torres was able to confirm with the victim that the truck had been taken without his knowledge or permission, and that he (the victim) had the keys to the truck in his possession.

After consulting with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, charges of Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, a state jail felony, were accepted on DERAS-FUENTES. In addition to this charge, it was found that DERAS-FUENTES also had traffic warrants from the city of Oak Ridge North.

DERAS-FUENTES was arrested and booked into the Montgomery County Jail on all charges.

 

 

 

On November 18, 2018 Deputy Torres responded to a family violence call in the 700 block of Holly Spring Drive in the River Plantation subdivision.

After an investigation into the circumstances of the call, Deputy Torres determined that the disturbance was only verbal and no violence had occurred between the two parties involved at that address. However, after checking both parties, a warrant was found for JOSEPH JACKSON MOORE, 47, a resident of this home.

The warrant was confirmed and MOORE was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance, Felony 3. MOORE is awaiting transport to Harris County to face charges there.
