THE OAK RIDGE NORTH POLICE DEPARTMENT CRIME ACTIVITY REPORT 01/30-02/6/2012
On 02/01/12 at approximately 1530 hours myself (Sr. Officer Nation) and Det. Sgt. Hubbard checked out at 258 Spring Pines, Spring, TX. in reference to following up on an information call. After gathering information on an investigation, a male who also resides at the residence introduced himself to me by name and date of birth to be Bert Hale, w/m, dob XXXXXX. Mr. Hale requested information on how to clear up fines on a outstanding citation out of Oak Ridge North. I ran Mr. Hale's information on my MDT for wanted, revealing a Capias Warrant "Non Payment For Child Support", #32636, with a $1,500. 00 cash bond out of Milam County. Montgomery County Dispatch confirmed Mr. Hale's warrant and we transported him to the Police Dept. for processing. After processing Mr. Hale's booking paper work, I transported him to the South Montgomery County Jail and released him to jail staff.
On 02/04/12 at approximately 1722 hours, I, Officer Kennerly, was advised by MSCO Dispatch of a burglary at 27000 IH 45 North Feeder at the AMF Bowling Alley. Upon arrival I was met by Michael Nations w/m dob XXXXXX who owns Carnation Enterprise. Nations owns several arcade games and a change machine in the AMF game room. At approximately 1528 hours two white females came in the arcade room and unlocked the change machine with a key and took $37.00 worth of quarters. Both females had blonde hair shoulder blade length, approximately 5'4" and the female that actually removed the change was a medium build, the other female was slender. Earlier at approximately 1028 hours the two females and a w/m approximately 6'00", medium build with short brown hair came in to look around, but did not take anything at that time. There is video of the burglary and the vehicle, but neither give a good description of the suspects or the vehicle. The vehicle was black with what appeared to be black colored rims, unknown make or model. The assistant manager Heidi Rose w/f stated the the two females came up to her and ask for change, but she did not suspect anything. Rose stated she would recognize them if she saw them again and call 911 immediately. Rose also stated she would see if she could get a copy of the video. Nations address for his business is 18306 Whispering Pines, Conroe, TX 77302 and his number 866-997-9900.
On 02-05-12 at about 0315 hrs. I, Officer W. B. Rogers (2715), was on routine patrol at IH 45, just south of Robinson Road, on the southbound Frontage Road. Deputy C. McKee (MCSO Unit # 2P1008) advised he was attempting to intercept a white passenger car that had just passed him at a high rate of speed, southbound on the main lanes of IH 45 near Robinson. Almost immediately I observed a white Infiniti G37 (2-door passenger sports car) approaching me from the north at an extremely high rate of speed. I did not see any police units pursuing that Infiniti, although I assumed that this Infiniti was the suspect vehicle. There were no other vehicles on the roadway at that time. I began to gain speed, reaching close to 100 miles per hour when the Infiniti swiftly passed me. I could only estimate the speed of the Infiniti at around 150 miles per hour due to how swiftly it passed me at my given speed. I could only assume that Deputy McKee had lost sight of the Infiniti or was having trouble keeping up with the Infiniti. It took me some time to safely catch up. I entered the main lanes of IH 45 just north of Sawdust and caught up with the Infiniti just south of Sawdust. There I observed the Infiniti slow down for other motorists ahead of it. The driver of the Infiniti abruptly slowed down and swerved to the left to avoid hitting a small pickup. There I activated my emergency red/blue lights and siren in an attempt to perform a traffic stop on the Infiniti. When the Infiniti swerved left it crashed into the concrete median barrier and slowed down to about 50 miles per hour. There the Infiniti sustained heavy damage to the entire left side of the vehicle. The Infiniti sped up again and proceeded southbound on the main lanes of IH 45. The driver of the Infiniti again sped up to about 90 miles per hour and again swerved hard left and crashed into the concrete median barrier again. The driver of the Infiniti sped up again to about 80 miles per hour and again swerved hard left and crashed into the concrete median barrier for a third time. That collision totally disabled the Infiniti. I pulled up behind the Infiniti and Deputy McKee arrived behind me shortly after. As we approached the Infiniti on foot, I observed the driver to be a white male, just sitting in the driver's seat, crying. He would not respond to verbal commands to turn off the motor and exit the vehicle. After a few minutes of his non-compliance, I forced entry into the Infiniti by breaking the right side passenger door window with a window punch. Then we were able to open the passenger door and verbally command him out of the vehicle. He was restrained with handcuffs. Although he did not have any apparent physical injuries, EMS medic # 22 was called to the scene to evaluate him. He was treated and released at the scene by EMS. He was identified by a Texas picture driver's license, identifying him as Christopher Keith Smith (W/M; DOBXXXXXX). The Infiniti was displaying Texas license plate # DB1Y612. MCSO dispatch advised Smith had an outstanding warrant for his arrest for Criminal Trespass (Warrant # 11-274382). I contacted ADA Dudley and he accepted the charge of Evading Arrest/Detention With A Motor Vehicle (3rd Degree Felony) on Smith. The Infiniti was towed by South County Wrecker to 28075 Robinson Road (see tow slip). While I was on scene, Smith's parents arrived and were extremely distraught. I identified his father as Roland Smith (W/M; DOB XXXXXX; TX DL # 04750501). Roland advised that his son (Christopher) was extremely suicidal due to a recent break-up with his girlfriend and recent legal troubles. Christopher confirmed that he was trying to kill himself when he repeatedly drove his car into the concrete median barrier. I transported Smith to MCSO jail without further incident. The digital video from my in-car video system was uploaded to the server at the ORNPD office. End of narrative.
On 02-06-12 at approximately 0701 hours I, Officer Teske, was advised by Chief Walters of a vehicle stuck in the ditch at the intersection of Westwood Drive and Lane Lane. I arrived on scene and observed a white GMC, displaying TX LP # DB2R815, in the ditch on the east side of Westwood Drive, north of Lane Lane. The vehicle was facing N/B. I observed the vehicle's right tires were stuck deep in the mud. A male was standing next to the vehicle and identified himself by name and date of birth as Michael Prevatt, w/m, dob xxxxxx). Prevatt advised he and his girlfriend, Jeannie McPherson (identified by Illinois DL # xxxxxxx), pulled to the side of the roadway to watch the residence at 202 Castlewood for his (Prevatt's) car. Prevatt advised that he spent the night at America's Best Value Inn on Saturday night, 02-04-12, with Tana Goodrich. Prevatt advised they had drinks, and when he woke up yesterday morning at the hotel, Goodrich, his property, and vehicle were gone. Prevatt advised that Goodrich lives nearby (202 Castlewood) and he and McPherson were watching to see if she arrived with his vehicle. Prevatt advised that he was trying to avoid filing a police report, in hopes she would arrive in his car. Prevatt had a wrecker pull his vehicle from the ditch. As a result of the vehicle being stuck, there were deep ruts left in the ditch. The damage value to the ditch is unknown at this time. Prevatt advised his missing vehicle was described as a 2005 gray Scion XP with ground effects, displaying an unknown "Desert Storm" Texas license plate. Prevatt was referred to the Shenandoah Police Department in reference to the theft of his property.
The white GMC that damaged the ditch, displayed TX LP # DB2R815, and is registered to Jeannie McPherson, xxxxxxxx, Humble, TX 77346. The vehicle is insured by Allstate under policy # xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.
ON 02-06-2012, AT 1:15PM WHILE ON PATROL I SGT T. LIBBY OBSERVED A SILVER 2DR MITSUBISHI MAKE AN ILLEGAL LEFT TURN FROM THE SE LOOP OF THE WOODLANDS PKWY ONTO THE WOODLAND PKWY OVERPASS. THIS INTERSECTION IS CLEARLY MARKED WITH A STATE SIGN INDICATING RIGHT TURN ONLY. I INITIATED A TRAFFIC STOP AND IDENTIFIED THE DRIVER AS WARD, GARY DON FROM HIS TEXAS ID# xxxxxxxxx. WARDS TX ID SHOWED TO BE SUSPENDED FOR NO INSURANCE. WHILE SPEAKING WITH WARD I COULD DETECT A STRONG ODOR OF MARIJUANA EMITTING FROM THE VEHICLE. I KNEW THIS ODOR TO BE MARIJUANA FROM MY TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE. I THEN ASKED WARD TO STEP OUT OF THE VEHICLE AND I REMOVED THE OTHER THREE OCCUPANTS OF THE VEHICLE AND PLACED THEM TO THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE. I THEN ASKED WARD WHERE THE MARIJUANA WAS AT IN THE VEHICLE AND HE STATED THAT IT WAS BETWEEN THE DRIVER SEAT AND THE CONSOLE. I THEN WENT TO THE VEHICLE AND RETRIEVED A CLEAR PLASTIC BAGGY FROM UNDER THE DRIVER SEAT NEAR THE CENTER CONSOLE. THE CLEAR PLASTIC BAGGY CONTAINED A GREEN LEAFY SUBSTANCE WHICH I KNEW TO BE MARIJUANA FROM MY TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE. I FIELD TESTED THE GREEN LEAFY SUBSTANCE WITH A NIK TEST KIT AND IT TESTED POSITIVE FOR MARIJUANA. THE MARIJUANA WAS WEIGHED ON A DIGITAL SCALED AND SHOWED TO WEIGH 7.5 GRAMS. WARD WAS ARRESTED FOR THE DRIVING WHILE LICENSE SUSPENDED AND POSSESSION OF MARIJUANA AND TRANSPORTED TO THE SOUTH MONTGOMERY COUNTY JAIL IN THE WOODLANDS. I THEN RETURNED TO SERVICE.
