On Thursday June 28, 2018 around 11:55 p.m., Constable Houston saw a white Dodge Dakota traveling east at a high rate of speed on Meekins Road in San Jacinto County.

Constable Houston was traveling west on Meekins Road. Constable Houston turned around to try and catch the vehicle going in excess speeds of 50 plus mph in a 30 mph zone. Constable Houston activated his emergency equipment on his marked patrol vehicle in an attempt to get the driver pull over. He saw that the driver of the motor vehicle did not make any attempts to stop but kept driving east on Meekins Road towards FM 1725, and then turned right onto FM 1725.

The Constable was then able to get the vehicle to pull over at CR 389 and FM 1725 in Liberty County, where he then made contact with the driver, Robert Robinson. Constable Houston detained Suspect Robinson for officer safety reasons and asked Robinson if he had any weapons or narcotics on him or in his vehicle. Robinson stated he had methamphetamine inside the

Vehicle, under the front seat. Constable Houston then retrieved a purple Crown Royal bag under the driver seat, containing a black digital scale, roll of unused clear plastic baggies, a glass pipe with residue

commonly used to smoke methamphetamine, a clear plastic baggie containing 9 grams of a crystal-like substance.

Constable Houston placed Suspect Robinson under arrest for manufacture / delivery of a controlled substance, and evading arrest or detention in a motor vehicle.

Robinson stated to Constable Houston that he had been selling the methamphetamine, and that he should have stopped when Constable Houston activated his lights and siren. While on scene, Deputy Petty of the San Jacinto County Sheriffs Office assisted and transported Suspect Robinson to the San Jacinto County Jail without incident.
