Traffic stops net narcotics
FLORESVILLE -- Terrance Brian Ross, 39, of Killeen is being held in the Wilson County Jail on $9,000 bond after being arrested during a May 26 traffic stop on U.S. 181 here.
According to Detective George Ortiz of the Floresville Police Department, Ross allegedly failed to signal when switching lanes at approximately 1 a.m., prompting officers to conduct the stop. Floresville police Sgt. Devin Keen and Patrolman Billy Herrera reported finding 0.6 grams of heroin in the vehicle. Ross was charged with possession of less than 1 gram of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1, before being transported to jail.
In an unrelated incident, 46-year-old Carolyn Kay Coker of Floresville was arrested June 5 and charged with possession of less than 1 gram of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1 and escape while arrested or confined. Keen and Floresville Patrolman Eric Hutchinson arrested her on warrants issued in connection with an incident that occurred the day before on S.H. 97 West.
Ortiz said Floresville Patrolman Matthew Redd initiated a traffic stop involving Coker at approximately 1:30 a.m. June 4. Redd arrested Coker after finding methamphetamine in the vehicle, and placed her in his patrol car. But while Redd was completing his investigation at her vehicle, Coker managed to escape.
According to Wilson County Jail records, Coker since was released on a total of $17,500 bond.
