Citizen Tips result in Arrest

SNAKE RIVER, July 14, 2017 - On the morning of Thursday, July 13th, Pct 3 Constable Mark Davison and his Deputy, Hugh Bishop, arrested a man for possession of what they believed was methamphetamine. The arrest was a result of anonymous tips from the Snake River Subdivision on SH 146 north.

It was around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday morning when Constable Mark "MadDog" Davison and his Deputy, Hugh Bishop, were giving the Snake River Subdivision a "close patrol". Residents had given several anonymous tips regarding certain people supplying and using meth in the area. The Constable headed down CR 2550 towards the Trinity River, while Bishop took CR 2557, also known as Coach Whip.

As soon as Bishop turned on Coach Whip, he encountered two men walking in the middle of the road. When Bishop stopped to talk with them, it turned out one of them had been named by the tipsters as a potential suspect. Bishop radioed MadDog, and within a couple of minutes they were both visiting with the two men.

The Constable inquired about a backpack that the older of the two men had been carrying. MadDog asked if he could look in the bag, and consent was given. After a few minutes of careful inspection of the backpack's contents, MadDog found a small baggie that contained a white crystal-like substance, believed to be meth.

The Constable took the man into custody. The second man was searched and did not have any contraband. Bishop released him after the man's record check came back clear.

The older subject was transported to the County Jail without incident. Deputy Bishop handled the book in process. MadDog entered the evidence into the Sheriff's Office system, assisted by S.O. personnel.

David Kirk Taylor, age 43 of Snake River, was booked in for the offense of Possession of a Controlled Substance, Penalty Group 1, >1 gram but <4 grams. The offense is a 3rd Degree Felony.

Taylor has an extesive criminal history in Liberty County.
