MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX- Additional details have emerged on the “Men in Black” Thursday morning raid. Around 10:30 a.m., Deputies with Precinct 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden’s Office executed an arrest warrant in the 13000 block of Firetower Rd., where they found a variety of items typically used for self-destruction or profiting from the self-destruction of others.
The pair, Thomas Courtney, 47, and 45-year-old Gladys Brown (both of Conroe) eventually hid inside the stolen travel trailer for a while – possibly due in part to cops on the outside and black tar heroin and methamphetamine inside with them. The man and woman eventually surrendered, and Precinct 4 took them into custody.
Being “cuffed and stuffed” was not an adjustment for Courtney or Brown. Public records show both were already convicted felons. What’s more, in 1993 Thomas Courtney was arrested for Capital Murder of a Peace Officer. However, he was not convicted of the charge.
Thomas Henderson Courtney, Jr., is charged with second-degree felony Possession of a Controlled Substance; third-degree felony Possession of a Controlled Substance; state jail felony Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle; and class B misdemeanor Criminal Trespass. He also had two open felony warrants, for a total of six charges currently on the jail roster, with five of them felonies.
Gladys Ann Brown is charged with second-degree felony Possession of a Controlled Substance; and third-degree felony Possession of a Controlled Substance.
