On February 9, 2016 around 4pm, Montgomery County Pct. 4 Narcotics Interdiction Team (NIT), received information about possible stolen vehicles at a residence in the 20900 blk of S. Navasota in New Caney, TX.
An investigation confirmed a red F-150 pickup truck was stolen from the Cleveland, TX area. Also on scene were 2 ATV’s that had the VIN numbers altered. Witnesses on scene advised the suspect had fled the property when deputies arrived, and provided the name and description.
Other Pct. 4 deputies canvassed the area looking for Justin Coker, who was located several streets away. Coker confessed to taking the vehicle earlier that morning. The ATV’s were turned over the Montgomery County Auto Theft for further investigation.
Also, while on scene a white Ford Explorer arrived, and when the driver saw deputies, he exited
the vehicle and locked all doors and refused a search. A K9 deputy was called to the scene and gave a positive alert on the vehicle. A small bag of methamphetamines was located, stuck to the driver’s wallet, located in the center console.
