Harris County Law Enforcement Captures Fugitive Tyler Getts on Vehicle Theft WarrantSource: Facebook/Mark Herman, Harris County Constable Precinct 4

Law enforcement officials in Harris County have put cuffs on a felon who had been on the lam. On February 22, Tyler Getts was nabbed by deputies with Constable Mark Herman's Special Operations Unit after they received a tip about his whereabouts. The collar went down without incident in the 2500 block of Gwenfair Drive, a residential area where Getts was found skulking nearby.

Getts, who had been wanted for vehicle theft, was detained by deputies and confirmed to have an outstanding felony warrant. The successful warrant service, posted on the Constable's Facebook page, ended with the suspect being booked into the Harris County Jail. His bail was reportedly set at a cool $5,000.00.

"Tyler Getts was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail for the open warrant," Constable Mark Herman said. In a sign that the legal troubles for Getts may just be beginning, Herman added, "Additional victims are expected to come forward and are encouraged to contact our dispatch or your local law enforcement."

The authorities have continued to appeal to the public for more information. They believe that this arrest may lead to further charges as more victims get wind of Getts's capture. Meanwhile, residents of the area where Getts was caught can breathe easier, knowing that one more felon is off the streets.
