Harris County Deputies Arrest Man for Unlawful Weapon Possession During Traffic StopSource: Facebook/Mark Herman, Harris County Constable Precinct 4

During a routine traffic stop in Harris County, deputies from Constable Mark Herman's Office pulled over Daione Joseph in the 19000 block of West Lake Houston Parkway on May 9, a stop that led to his arrest for illegal weapon possession. A search of the vehicle unearthed a loaded gun and a quantity of marijuana, a concoction of trouble for the driver who found himself on the wrong side of the law, and not just traffic violations.

Arrest records indicate that Joseph's interaction with the deputies escalated quickly once the firearm and drugs came to light, as per a post from the Constable's Office on Facebook. He was given a $100 bond in County Court 7, a sum that both acknowledges the gravity of the offense and offers a swift opportunity for release. "Daione Joseph was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail, charged with Unlawful Carry of a Weapon," stated Constable Mark Herman following the incident, underscoring the resolve of local law enforcement in keeping the streets clear of unlawful weapons and the implications thereof.
