Pct. 4 Men in Black Bust Multi-County Armed Fugitive

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX– Just before midnight Sunday, Deputies with Pct. 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden’s Office spotted a wanted man inside of a moving vehicle, and took a fugitive from justice into custody and off the streets of East Montgomery County.

Around 11:45 p.m., a Pct. 4 Deputy noticed a known fugitive in a vehicle traveling in the 23800 block of Walton Avenue in New Caney. The Deputy called for backup, and several Precinct 4 Deputies swiftly executed a high-risk traffic stop at the 23800 block of Walton Avenue.

Deputies successfully detained 26-year-old Shilo Wells, of Porter. Wells had outstanding warrants from The Polk County, for violating his bond on multiple felony narcotics and weapons charges, along with a warrant from Harris County for Failure to Appear on yet another weapons charge.

Amazingly, when the Sunday night arrest occurred, Wells had a 9mm semi-automatic pistol tucked in his waistband. Subsequent investigation included a search of Wells’ vehicle, resulting in the seizure of 15.8 grams of Methamphetamine, 6.6 grams of Alprazolam (generic Xanax), 2.2 grams of Methadone, and 5.3 ounces of Marijuana found in Wells’ backpack inside the vehicle.

Wells, already a convicted felon, is charged with Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon by a Felon, three counts of felony Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Marijuana (4 ounces to 5 pounds). He also faces extradition for the Polk and Harris County warrants.

Constable Hayden said the community is safer today because of the vigilance and thoroughness of his Deputies, who removed illicit drugs and an armed felon from the public.

“Our Deputies served the citizens of Precinct 4, as well as two other neighboring counties last night, with the arrest of a fugitive,” Constable Hayden said.

Wells’ bond for the new Montgomery County charges totals $120,000, and he’s held without bond on the out-of-county warrants.
