POOR PARKING CHOICE LEADS TO CAPTURE

A Precinct 4 Deputy Constable was on routine patrol early Thursday when he happened upon a wanted felon. The deputy was on Dipping Lane in New Caney, near the Harris County line just after 5 a.m. when he saw a car parked in a remote darkened area known as a dumping spot for stolen vehicles. When he approached the car and shined his spotlight on it, he saw a man and woman in the darkened car.

The deputy recognized the male on sight, and knew he was recently convicted of a felony and must have been paroled. As the deputy approached the vehicle, he saw suspicious movements by the male inside the car. He asked the male, 42-year-old Charles Brian Hodges of New Caney, to step out of the vehicle. When the deputy checked Hodges through dispatch, he learned Hodges had an active “blue warrant,” meaning his parole had been revoked for violation, but law enforcement had not caught up with him.

While speaking with Hodges, the deputy noticed his behavior and other factors consistent with the use of methamphetamines. The deputy gained Hodges’ consent to search the vehicle and inside a cigarette box the deputy had seen Hodges place on the dashboard was a substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine. Hodges was taken into custody for the first-degree felony Blue Warrant and state jail felony Possession of Methamphetamine
