Officers in Action

Recently, Officers C. Kirk, A. Cotter, and M. Oquendo, all assigned to the Clear Lake Patrol Division, were dispatched to a disturbance call at 10600 Sabo Road. The citizen stated that she was being stalked and harassed by her estranged husband. The suspect had broken the citizen’s window prior to officers arriving.  Officers completed a report.

Later in the shift, the suspect returned and the citizen called the police again. This time, officers had a description of the suspect and his vehicle and saw him driving away when they arrived.

Officers followed the suspect and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the suspect refused to pull over and a pursuit began. The suspect evaded until running into a stop sign when he then fled on foot. Officers quickly established a perimeter and were able to arrest the suspect without further incident.

Officers discovered that the suspect had numerous prior arrests included felonies. Officers discussed the facts of this case with the Harris County District Attorney’s Officer and the suspect was charged with Felony Evading Arrest and Felony Violation of a Protective Order. The suspect also had an outstanding felony warrant for burglary of a habitation.

Due to this outstanding police work, a violent felony suspect was taken off of the streets. Great job!
