June 27, 2012 Sheriff's Report
June 27, 2012
We would like to congratulate the Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers and Eric Malone on the big marijuana bust they made recently. Seems that Interstate 10 has been patrolled so hard the bad guys are taking other routes to deliver their dope.
You never know what a traffic stop is going to turn up these days, great job guys.
We went with the U. S. Marshalls to serve a federal parole warrant on County Road 588. We found the guy home but he refused to allow us to search his truck.
We called our K-9 officer.
His dog alerted on the vehicle and we found nearly an ounce of meth. He was booked in on his federal warrant and now he has a possession charge facing him as well.
We have had two burglaries on Farm to Market 777 where they have broken into houses and taken a items but leaving more than they took; this makes me think juveniles are involved.
In one burglary they took a couple of .22 caliber rifles and a pellet gun ,but in the next house they took a flat screen TV, DVD player and some liquor. If anyone has any information regarding these burglaries I would appreciate them giving me a call.
We received a call regarding some kids on a four wheeler around FM 255 shooting at some of the men that work for Precinct 2. They followed the kids back to their residence and found the kids had a paint-ball gun.
We received a call the day before where they had shot at a car on FM 255; those kids need to find another way to spend their summer. Pointing anything that resembles a gun toward someone can end with bad results.
Saturday evening we had an individual in the Gum Slough area that had a knife and didn’t want to exit his house to talk to us. We managed to get him out safely and took him to the hospital where we had MHMR come and evaluate him.
They said he was fine so he is in jail on a public intoxication charge.
At the same time, we had some young men floating the Angelina River and got into a fight and walked into the woods. We found one that night and the other showed up the next morning. We do have better ways to spend our time and fuel.
We have 83 in jail this morning.
The weather is hot and everybody is watching the Gulf.
Remember, school is out, so keep your eyes open; it’s our job to see that these kids get raised
with as little harm to themselves as possible.
Call us if you need us.
