Wanted Fugitive Captured in Harris County Following Routine Traffic StopSource: Facebook/Mark Herman, Harris County Constable Precinct 4

A routine traffic stop took an unexpected turn when a sergeant with Constable Mark Herman's Office pulled over a driver who turned out to be a wanted fugitive. The incident occurred on April 14 and began simply as a check on a vehicle in the 21700 block of Kuykendahl Road.

Víctor Uribe, the man behind the wheel, was initially stopped for a traffic violation. However, a deeper investigation soon uncovered that Uribe had an open felony warrant for Possession of Dangerous Drugs issued by the Delta County Sheriff's Office. This development swiftly escalated the traffic stop to an arrest situation.

In a post on the official Facebook page of Precinct 4, Constable Mark Herman provided details of the arrest. "Victor Uribe was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail for the open warrant," said Herman. He also noted that "His bond amount and court information is have not been set at this time," signaling the beginning of the judicial process for Uribe.

Uribe remains in custody at the Harris County Jail, awaiting the setting of his bond and subsequent legal proceedings. The exact nature and quantity of the dangerous drugs specified in Uribe's warrant have not been disclosed to the public.
