Teens Arrested Enjoying Nature

On Sunday, around 10 a.m., a Pct. 4 Deputy Constable patrolling in the area of Tram Road in Splendora noticed vehicles parked in handicapped spaces in the Tram Road Park’s parking lot. The park was closed, so the deputy approached the vehicles to check things out and as he got out of his patrol vehicle, the driver of a parked vehicle got out and walked toward him. The passenger of that vehicle then got out and the deputy noticed both subjects seemed extremely nervous and had a strong smell of burnt marijuana. The driver was a 16-year-old from New Caney and the passenger was 18-year-old James Welborn of Salado, Texas.  When asked about contraband, the juvenile driver said he had four small plastic bags containing marijuana inside his school backpack, which was inside the 2001 Ford Focus he was driving. He said the rest of the car was clean. While searching the vehicle, the deputy found another clear plastic bag containing marijuana inside a pocket on the passenger door. The driver denied ownership of that bag and it did not match those in his backpack.
