Suspect Kerry Gentry of Cleveland.
Suspect Richard Perry of Grangerland.

New Caney, February 18 – Precinct 4 Constable Rowdy Hayden’s team made two felony drug arrests after receiving a tip from a concerned citizen made in response to an article which appeared in The Golden Hammer, Montgomery County’s leading newspaper. The Golden Hammer brought the comment to the attention of the law enforcement authorities. The citizen and Constable Hayden deserve the accolades (as The Golden Hammer merely acted as a communication ombudsman.)

Constable Hayden’s rapid response and the outstanding work by him and by his superb Deputies reflects well on the conscientiousness of Hayden, his team, and our entire community. Montgomery County citizens are working closely with public safety officials to make our County a better place. Local citizens are genuinely interested and concerned about the areas they live in. Thanks to measures put in place by Constable Hayden, citizens are able communicate with law enforcement though a variety of methods, including the department’s website and social media pages.

The information concerned the area of Fostoria Road and Morgan Cemetery Road and an uptick in what citizens believed were narcotic sales and possession in that area. Less than 15 hours later Precinct 4 Deputies had 2 different subjects in custody, both for felony charges.

During a traffic stop, it was found that Richard Perry, born October 4, 1979, from Grangerland was allegedly in possession of a syringe containing methamphetamine. Another stop led Precinct 4 Deputies to Kerry Gentry, born January 25, 1996, from Cleveland, Texas. The Deputies found Gentry in possession of marijuana. During the transport to the jail, Gentry tried to hide more marijuana in the vehicle of the transport police car. The Deputies charged Gentry Tampering with Physical Evidence, a 3rd degree felony.

Constable Hayden would like to thank the citizens for taking a stand against crime.  Law enforcement can always use another set of eyes and ears. The Precinct 4 Constable’s Office of Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden follows up on the tips it receives and would like to direct citizens to the Constable’s website: On the website, Constable Hayden lists the programs the office offers, as well as a page dedicated to providing tips ( Constable Hayden also invites citizens to follow us on Facebook: and and on Twitter: Constable Hayden is even on Instagram: The ease of communication with Hayden and his team in Precinct 4 is rapidly turning him and his entire teams into law enforcement rock stars.
