A female complainant reported that on 4-9-18 about 11pm a dark colored Chevrolet Suburban or SUV initiated a traffic stop of her vehicle while she was traveling Westbound on East Highway 31 between Trinidad and Kerens.
The complainant advised that the vehicle displayed red emergency lights inside the vehicle near the rear view mirror but she did not observe any insignia on the vehicle.
The suspect was described by the complainant as an African American male, light skin toned, 5’10” with medium build, and a quarter size birth mark under his right ear. The suspect was wearing a black shirt and black pants and had a small patch of hair below his bottom lip. The suspect was also described to speak with a lisp or have a minor speech impediment. No weapon, badge or other identifier was observed.
The suspect approached the vehicle and advised the complainant that she had a defective taillight. The suspect asked the complainant to exit the vehicle to observe the defective taillight but because of her suspicion she refused to exit her vehicle. The suspect then returned to his vehicle and left the location.
The complainant advised she believes that the suspect vehicle followed her into Navarro County from Henderson County.
We have notified Henderson County Sheriff’s Office and Kerens P.D. of the incident and we are asking anyone who may have witnessed this incident, have information about this incident, or the suspects identity is asked to contact C.I.D. Sergeant Robbie Jock at 903-654-3002 to report information.
Sheriff Elmer Tanner.
