Runaway Juveniles Located

LIBERTY August 20, 2015 – A call from Sgt. R. Koch with the Crete, Nabraska Police Department to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office in the afternoon hours of Wednesday, August 19th. put into motion several telephone calls and interaction between several agencies to locate one out of state juvenile female and one out of county juvenile male runaway. This quick interaction between agencies and the alertness of Liberty County Sheriff’s Sergeant Travis Pierce resulted in the taking into custody of both runaways within about a two hour period of time.

According to Sgt. Pierce, the initial report from the Crete Police Department indicated the young juvenile female may be in the area of Horseshoe Lake Estates of Liberty county with a juvenile male who was, himself, a runaway from a Child Protective facility in Houston. Both juveniles were reported to possibly be in a 2008 Ford F-150, 4 dr. pick-up truck with Commercial Nebraska license plates. The Crete Police Department reported this vehicle had been stopped earlier by a Kansas State Trooper who issued a warning ticket for a traffic violation. It was further indicated that both juveniles have been in constant contact with each other via cell phone and other social media devices.

Sgt. Pierce began making contact with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, the Sheltering Arms facility in Houston as well as the CPS agencies involved to coordinate their information in an attempt to locate the two runaway juveniles. Driving to the area of CR 2850 and CR 2851 in the area of Romayer, Texas, Sgt. Pierce patrolled and later spotted the wanted vehicle where he conducted a stop and both juveniles were identified and detained. A search and inventory of the Ford truck turned up Marijuana, a smoking pipe as well as alcohol. Both juveniles are being held for CPA and the young juvenile female is being held for the Crete, Nebraska Police Department. The father of the runaway female later called Sgt. Pierce who assured the girl’s father that his daughter was not injured and in good health and was currently under the protection of Law Enforcement.
