With two days remaining in 2013, just three area residents — two from Brownwood and one from Comanche — were unable to stay out of jail.
Those three were the individuals whose names appeared on the Brown County Jail log as Monday's arrests. Two were arrested on warrants, and one was arrested after allegedly running from a police officer during a "pedestrian stop."
The subject of the pedestrian stop, Jeremy Ortega, 28, was arrested on charges of evidence tampering, evading arrest and possession of marijuana, police and jail records state. The evidence tampering was the more serious of the charges — a third degree felony, while the other two charges are misdemeanors, jail records state.
Officer Jesse Mares made the arrest while patrolling in the 1800 block of Avenue B. Mares made the pedestrian stop because a man was walking with traffic instead of against traffic, Mares' report states.
Sheriff's deputy Brian Lundy arrested Jackie Byrd, 32, of Comanche, on a parole warrant and on a bond withdrawal warrant that alleged possession of a "drug test falsification devise."
Officer Fred Bastardo arrested Demory Wilson Jr., 21, on traffic warrants.
