Traffic Violation Leads to Drugs and Guns

Officers arrested a male and a female who were suspected of being in possession of a controlled substance, stolen handguns, possession of marijuana and stolen property.

On Sunday, February 24, 2019, at approximately 1:25 a.m., officers observed a blue Scion, occupied by two people, weaving in and out of traffic in the 3400 block of E. Central Texas Expressway.  As officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop near Goode Circle, the male driver slowly rolled the vehicle and jumped out; fleeing westbound on foot, while the passenger stayed in the vehicle.  Officers in the area located the suspect near the Killeen Mall and took him into custody without incident.   Both suspects were transported to the Killeen City Jail.

The Killeen Police Department is extremely proud of the actions of the night shift.  Their proactive police work removed drugs and handguns off the streets of Killeen and possibly prevented more needless gun violence. We are all lucky that these officers were quick in recognizing a dangerous situation and rectifying it in a safe manner.
