The following are excerpts from just some of the reports recently generated by the Houston Police Department:
•Kolby J. Morgan, 19, of 14898 Sand Hollow Road at Bucyrus, was issued citations for peace disturbance, second-degree trespassing and minor in possession of alcohol by consumption after an incident on Nov. 5.
Two officers were dispatched at about 6 p.m. regarding a report of an unruly customer at Casey’s General Store on U.S. 63 who had knocked a cash register off the counter and knocked over a food rack. Upon arrival, several people at the store told the officers the suspect – Morgan – had left, walking toward Taco Bell.
The officers made contact with Morgan in the Taco Bell parking lot and noticed he was barefoot and not wearing a jacket in the cold weather. They also observed that he had difficulty maintaining his balance and had slurred speech. After an investigation, Morgan was cited and taken to jail for a 12-hour hold period.
•Kaleb M. Brown, 21, of 816 Sommerfield Drive in Houston, was issued citations for peace disturbance and property damage after allegedly setting off a smoke bomb inside Walmart on Oct. 31.
Upon entering the store, an investigating officer saw a smoky haze and detected a strong odor of smoke, and heard customers complaining about the smoke. The officer then observed a section of flooring in the men’s apparel department that was burned and stained red. Surveillance video was watched and Brown was identified as the suspect.
He was arrested at his residence and taken to jail.
The estimated cost to fix the damage was $500.
•Katrina M. Hock, 32, of 104 Acorn Lane in Houston, was issued a citation for allowing an animal to run at large (second offense) on Nov. 12.
•Jordan S. Clinton, 29, of 216 Bryan St. in Houston, was cited for stealing under $750 after allegedly making a fraudulent return at a retail business on Nov. 4.
Clinton reportedly purchased a chainsaw bar at Farris Sales and then received a refund for a different bar a short time later.
•On Oct. 29, an officer investigated a counterfeit $100 bill at Walmart.
The officer made contact with a 54-year-old woman there who said she had tried to buy groceries with the fake money and had no idea it was counterfeit. She told the officer she had received the bill earlier the same day from a man who was buying a vehicle from her.
Attempts to locate the man for questioning failed. Investigation is ongoing.
•Erron R. Lacey, 22, of 112 Spruce St. in Houston, was arrested Oct. 29 for having an active Pulaski County felony warrant (of unreported nature).
An officer made the arrest at a Spruce Street apartment complex. But Lacey attempted to flee from the officer, and ignored several commands to stop.
He was located hiding under a bluff in a wooded area north of Walnut Street.
Lacey was taken to jail on the warrant and a probable cause statement was sent to the county prosecutor seeking an additional charge for resisting arrest.
