New Caney, January 31 – Constable Rowdy Hayden, Precinct 4, announced a major arrest of an individual, Dillon Jay Shaffer, who was found in possession of five baggies testing positive for methamphetamine with an approximate weight of 103.41 grams, pills, and a 0.794 ounce bag of marijuana. The arrest occurred after a motorcycle pursuit.
Around 5:05 p.m., a Precinct 4 Deputy Constable observed a motorcycle with no plate visible and attempted to make a traffic stop. The driver, Dillon Jay Shaffer, born October 15, 1991, turned around, looked, and began to attempt to escape. The Deputy advised law enforcement agencies of the pursuit which was approximately 50 miles per hour through a subdivision and back onto Northpark Drive.
Houston Police were working an accident and an HPD officer stood out in the street and stopped the motorcycle. As the Precinct 4 Deputy Constable took the subject to the ground, a gun fell out of his boot onto the ground. The Deputy took the driver into custody. A search of Shaffer’s backpack found scales, baggies, pipes, and the drugs.
After identifying the 2013 Honda CB500 motorcycle, the authorities discovered that it had been stolen.
Shaffer had a GPS ankle monitor on his left leg and a warrant out of Pardon and Parole.
The Precinct 4 Constable’s Office arrested Shaffer for felony evading arrest and detention, felony manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, felony possession of a firearm, and a felony blue warrant.
The Constable’s Office and the Houston Police Department did a terrific job working cooperatively to help to capture the (alleged) fleeing felon.
