Thanks to an anonymous tip from a concerned citizen, narcotics and a criminal are off the streets. On Monday, May 23, 2022, at around 11:15 am, Harris County Constable Precinct 7 Communications Division broadcast an anonymous tip received from a caller regarding suspicious individuals sitting under a tree selling drugs at Bremond Street and Nettleton Street in 3rd Ward. Precinct 7 Deputy J. Ballard responded to the call.
When Deputy Ballard arrived at the scene, there was a distinct scent of burning marijuana. As she approached a male subject sitting under the tree, other individuals nearby got hostile. To help get these people under control, Deputy Ballard requested assistance from other officers. Moments later, Deputy V. Torres arrived and assisted Deputy Ballard by keeping these individuals, later identified as the suspect's family members, at bay.
The anonymous tip provided by a concerned citizen and the outstanding work of Deputy Ballard and Deputy Torres led to the arrest of Curtis King. Mr. King has somewhat of a lengthy criminal history dating back to 2003. Charges he faced in the past include Aggravated Assault, Unlawful Carry of a Firearm, Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver, Deadly Conduct, Burglary of a Habitation, Possession of Marijuana, and Retaliation. This time King was charged, processed, and taken to jail with Felony Possession of Marijuana.
Harris County Precinct 7 Constable May Walker encourages citizens to report suspicious activity as soon as they see it.
