The Golden Hammer Staff Reports
Conroe, December 2 – On November 18, 2022, a Precinct 4 Deputy Constable responded to the area of Firetower Road near Tommy Smith Road in Conroe regarding a call about two males spray-painting graffiti on a water tank. Upon arrival, the deputy made contact with the two subjects, one of whom was not being cooperative and would not listen to the Deputy.
It was then the subject removed a chrome pistol from his front waistband, turned and threw it into a nearby pond. The subject, identified as Thomas Falk, 24 years old from Conroe, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession of narcotics and misdemeanor unlawful carrying of a weapon.
The other subject was not charged. Due to the heavily overgrown pond, the weapon could not be recovered at that time.
On November 30, Deputies certified in rescue diving from the Montgomery County Precinct 1, Constable Philip Cash’s Office, Roman Forest Police Department, and Texas DPS assisted in searching the overgrown pond for the weapon. A few hours later the weapon was found and identified as a chrome-colored pistol matching the description given by the Deputy.
Thomas Falk is now also facing an additional charge of felony tampering with evidence. Falk is currently in the Montgomery County Jail.
Constable Hayden thanked Constable Cash and his Deputies, Chief Carlisle, and the Roman Forest Police Department as well as the Texas Department of Public Safety for their assistance in the recovery of the firearm.
