Officers locate, struggle to contain suspicious person

The Law Enforcement Center dispatch received a call just after midnight on Monday, March 23 with the report of a suspicious person at Love’s Travel Center.

Police Officers Shaniece Hall and Robble Acosta tracked the suspect to the Flaming Caesar’s restaurant and called for backup. Deputy James Hawkins arrived to find Officer Acosta struggling to place the suspect, Kelcey Damon Porter, age 41 of Rosharon, Tex., in his squad car. The pair was able to move the suspect into the vehicle. For the rest of this incident and others handled by local law enforcement last week, see the March 26 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
