PORTER, TX -- On Tuesday, May 21st, at approximately 8:20 a.m., a Montgomery County, Precinct 4 Deputy conducted a traffic stop at the Fuel Max located at the corner of Valley Ranch Pkwy. and Azalea Blvd. in Porter, TX. During the stop, the Deputy discovered the passenger in the vehicle, identified by his TX ID card as Jeremy Hebert, 19, from Palestine, TX, had an outstanding class C warrant in Montgomery County for Failing to Stop or Remain Stopped. Additionally, he was wanted in Louisiana for Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor, with full extradition.

When the Deputy asked Herbert to exit the vehicle, Herbert fired a shot towards the Deputy and fled on foot into the nearby Valley Ranch Subdivision. Multiple agencies responded to establish a perimeter. Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office SWAT and the Montgomery County Fire Marshal’s Office drone pilots joined our drone, "Eagle 4" in the search.

The suspect was located by our drone pilot and "Eagle 4" hiding in a backyard on American Yellowwood Place. Luckily, this stopped Deputies from walking into a potential ambush. Surrounding the backyard from adjacent properties, Deputies confronted Herbert as he raised his weapon. Two Precinct 4 Deputies discharged their weapons, stopping the threat. Life-saving measures were immediately administered, and Herbert was transported to a local hospital where he is currently in stable condition.

Jeremy Hebert is facing several charges, including three second-degree felony charges of Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer with a Deadly Weapon, misdemeanor Evading on Foot, and misdemeanor Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon. He currently has a bond total of $227,000.

The driver of the vehicle, identified by her TX Driver’s License as Sarah Frame, 28, from Conroe, TX, was charged with state jail felony Possession of a Controlled Substance, third-degree felony Possession of a Controlled Substance, and two misdemeanor possession charges. She is facing a total bond of $4,500.

The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office and the Texas Rangers are investigating the incident.

Constable Hayden extends his gratitude to all responding agencies for their assistance, including the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (patrol, SWAT/drone, PIO, Crime Scene, and Homicide/Violent Crimes Detectives), Patton Village Police, Roman Forest Police, Montgomery County Fire Marshal’s Office/drone, Texas DPS, Montgomery County Hospital District/EMS, and the Porter Fire Department. He also commends the heroic actions of our drone pilot, whose quick thinking and skillful operation of "Eagle 4" prevented further danger to our Deputies.
