Kevin Wayne Nobles Arrested
DAISETTA February 18, 2015 – On Wednesday, February 11, 2015, Liberty County Pct #4 Constable's Office developed intelligence which led them to believe they may have a possible location on 23-year-old Kevin Wayne Nobles of Devers, Texas. Nobles, who was wanted on outstanding theft warrants, led Liberty County Sheriff's Office on a high speed chase which resulted in a crash on 02/05/2015. Nobles, also known as "Twitch," a known member of the white supremacist group Southern White Soldiers, was able to evade apprehension and remained on the run for the next six days.
After checking one location on the morning of February 15, 2015, all information led the officers to believe that Nobles was possibly planning an exodus from the State of Texas and that he may make an attempt to travel to the Houma, Louisiana area. This new intelligence also led the officers to believe that Nobles was hiding out inside a residence located on CR 2084 off of Governor's Road between Hardin and Liberty.
Once the four marked units were in place (2 from Pct #2 and 2 from Daisetta PD) these officers then converged onto the residence while Pct #4 took an observation point across a field so that anyone fleeing the residence in any direction could be easily detected and that information could be quickly related to the officers on the ground.
At approximately 1:00 PM, on Wednesday, February 11, 2015, Kevin Wayne Nobles was located hiding in the attic of the residence on CR 2084. Nobles was obviously physically worn from the week-long evasion and it seemed he was almost relieved that the ordeal was finally over. Nobles was safely apprehended from the attic without resistance and without incident. Nobles was arrested on Liberty County Sheriff's Office warrants for the offenses of Theft (Bond Forfeiture), Failure to Identify (Fugitive from Justice) and Evading Arrest / Detention in a Motor Vehicle.
This case was generated by the Liberty County Sheriff's Office while simply attempting to serve a lawful warrant on Nobles when Nobles fled the scene. The deputies attempting to arrest Nobles on the evening of February 11, 2015 were knowledgable of area criminals and were completely aware that Kevin Nobles was not Alvin Nelton whom Nobles claimed to be. Nelton is actually Nobles' brother. The sheriff's office alerted all other law enforcement of this incident and began an all-out effort to bring Nobles into custody.
"It was only through the concerted effort of all of Liberty County law enforcement agencies working together that brought this story to a safe conclusion," said Daisetta Police Chief Mike Parrish. "Liberty County is growing very rapidly and the more dangerous criminal element is no longer creeping into even the smallest communities but, it seems, they're running here instead. I think it's safe to say, on behalf of all state and local law enforcement, that if you're a crook and you want to run to Liberty County to set up operations, you really should re-evaluate that decision because our citizens and our law enforcement won't tolerate your presence here for very long."
Nobles was doggedly pursued by several agencies over a six-day period and his apprehension was brought about without injury to a single citizen or officer and without damage to property thanks to the cooperation of all law enforcement entities involved.
