PRESS RELEASE


Friendswood police arrested 13 people last week, all played a part in the buying and selling of crystal methamphetamine.


On March 18 at 3:16 a.m., Ryan Ellison Dillon, 33, of Alvin, and Nickie Webster, 30, of Hitchcock, were charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance in Penalty Group 1. Dillon was stopped for a traffic violation in the 1700 block of FM 528.

Dillon only had an identification card and advised that he was unable to renew his driver’s license due to outstanding traffic warrants in Manvel. Dillon was taken into custody for Driving While License Invalid. Before placing Dillon in the back of the police car, he was searched and found to have a small clear vile containing two pieces of cotton that tested positive as methamphetamine.

Webster’s identifiers were checked and she had an outstanding warrant in Brazoria County for Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance in Penalty Group 1 with a $100,000 bond. During a search of the vehicle, nine doses of Carisoprodol were found in Webster’s purse and eight doses of Risperidone were in the driver’s door compartment. A coffee can with a hidden compartment contained methamphetamine residue. Once Dillon and Lucas were transported to the jail, a baggie containing 12.7 grams of methamphetamine was found in the back seat of the police car. Dillon’s bond was set at $30,000. Webster’s bond was set at $20,000.

Also on March 18 at 3:26 a.m., Mindy Lee Lucas, 32, of League City, was charged with Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance in Penalty Group 1. Travis Earl Wooldridge, 21, of Lake Jackson, was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance in Penalty Group 3.

An officer was checking on a suspicious vehicle at an apartment complex in the 1800 block of FM 528. The vehicle was circling the apartment complex and had permanent license plates but no registration sticker. The vehicle stopped and parked in a secluded and dark area in the corner of the parking lot; the occupants reclined their seats and were trying to hide. An officer approached the vehicle and noticed that the two occupants were moving around.

Lucas attempted to throw a marijuana pipe out of the driver’s side window, but the window was still rolled up. The pipe fell in the floor board and was still smoking. While she was trying to get the pipe, Wooldridge was also reaching around in the floorboard. Wooldridge opened the car door, exited and dropped a baggie containing four pills. The pills were identified as Diazepam and Wooldridge was taken into custody.

The officer looked inside the vehicle and noticed a wad of cash, a marijuana pipe, a digital scale and several small baggies. Lucas exited the vehicle, her outer clothing was searched, and she was found to be in possession of crystal methamphetamine. Another bag of meth was found in Lucas’ purse and a third bag of meth was found next to the driver’s seat. In total, Lucas has 32.7 grams of methamphetamine. Lucas’ bond was set at $30,000. Wooldridge’s bond was set at $4,000.

The following day, on March 19 at 2:43 p.m., Christopher Scott Hearen, 37, of Texas City, was charged with Aggravated Assault, Fail to Stop and Render Aid (Accident Involving Serious Injury), and Evading Arrest. Daniel Rodriguez, 39, of Austin, was charged with Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity ($40,000).

Crystal Ann Manning, 32, of Kemah, was charged with Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity ($5,000). Brian Allen Buck, Jr., 36, of Alvin, was charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon ($25,000) and Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity ($40,000).

Friendswood officers witnessed a drug transaction occurring in the Jack in the Box parking lot. As the two vehicles involved in the transaction left the parking lot, marked Friendswood police cars attempted to stop the vehicles.

Manning and Buck were stopped in the 200 block of E. Parkwood Avenue. During the stop, Manning told police that she had marijuana pipes inside the vehicle along with open containers of alcohol. Buck appeared to be under the influence of methamphetamine and was unable to stand still.

An officer searched the vehicle and found 1.4 grams of methamphetamine along with two marijuana pipes and a methamphetamine pipe. The officer also found five credit cards that did not belong to anyone inside the car. A gun stolen from Salt Lake City, Utah, was found inside the vehicle. During a later interview, officers discovered that Buck had traded a set of speakers for the gun.

Meanwhile, an officer attempted to stop a tan-colored Chevrolet Tahoe in the 400 block of W. Parkwood for a traffic violation following the drug transaction. Instead of stopping, the driver of the Tahoe accelerated.

A couple of unmarked police cars got in front of the vehicle to slow it to a stop, but the driver erratically and recklessly sped ahead of the undercover cars. The pursuit proceeded east bound on FM 528 towards Interstate 45. As the pursuit made a u-turn under NASA Bypass, the driver threw something out of the window. The item was recovered by a Webster police officer. Once the vehicle went northbound on Interstate 45, he was still traveling at a high rate of speed and still throwing objects out of the window.

The suspect vehicle came to a stop in the 200 block of S 74th ½ Street. Both the driver and the passenger fled on foot. The driver, Christopher Hearen, 37, of Texas City, was captured by a Friendswood police officer. The passenger, Daniel Rodriguez, 39, of Austin, was captured by a Houston police officer.

The item thrown from the vehicle at the NASA Bypass u-turn was a bag containing 14.8 grams of crystal methamphetamine. Later, Hearen admitted that he was selling the methamphetamine.

Rodriguez told police that he was the “middle man” who helped to set up the transaction. Manning and Buck also admitted to conspiring to sell methamphetamine. A charge of Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity was accepted on all four co-conspirators. Hearen is currently on parole following a 2010 charge for Delivery of Methamphetamine. His parole expires in August 2015. Hearen is being held in the Harris County Jail with no bond.

Later that day, the owner of the Tahoe that Hearen was driving, came to the police department inquiring about her vehicle. She was cited for allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a vehicle and was turned over to the custody of Texas City for outstanding warrants.

On March 21 at 4:31 p.m., Carina Nicole Partridge, 29, of Houston, was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance in Penalty Group 1, Possession of a Controlled Substance in Penalty Group 3, and Possession of a Dangerous Drug.

Partridge was stopped for a traffic violation in the 400 block of E. Edgewood Drive. Partridge exhibited signs of drug use including nervousness and constant picking of her fingernails and moving around. Partridge gave the officer consent to search her vehicle and told him that she had Vicodin in her purse but did not have a prescription for it. Also found inside the vehicle were three units of Carisoprodol and four units of Hydrocodone. As the officer was taking Partridge into custody, she reached into her clothing and pulled out a back of methamphetamine.

And, on March 22 at 2:17 a.m., Richard Wayne Napper, 44, of Houston, was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance in Penalty Group 1. An officer was patrolling the parking lot of the Bridgestone Apartments located at 4949 FM 2351.

A man was at the back of the apartment complex standing outside of a vehicle with the car door open. The officer contacted Napper and found that he was not a resident of the apartment complex. The officer checked Napper’s identifiers and found that he had a warrant in Pasadena. Napper was taken into custody for the warrant and subsequently admitted to having marijuana inside the vehicle. During the search for the marijuana, the officer also found methamphetamine.

Two others were arrested for meth-related charges on March 17. Ariel Morgan Ellis, 24, of Webster was arrested on a warrant in Harris County charging her with Possession of a Controlled Substance in Penalty Group 1. She is currently being held in the Harris County jail with no bond.

We need to see the B.M.-A.M. pics(before meth-after meth). Those pictures show the costs of meth better than any police report.

Great job Friendswood PD and kudos to Chief Wieners for the great work his men and women do to keep the citizens of Friendswood and Galveston County safe!

Could you imagine if the Friendswood police Chief was the sheriff? The drug dealers would have to go to another entire county.. Hmmm Not such a bad idea..
