TX: Armed Citizen Holds Fugitive for Police

“Deputies quickly set up a perimeter in the area of County Road 143 and the reverse 911 system was again activated to notify area residents of the suspect’s updated location and description,” he stated.

At 9:08 a.m., BCSO dispatchers received a 911 call from a resident in the 400 block of CR 143.

“The caller stated that he had located the suspect lying in a creek bed on his property and was holding him at gunpoint,” according to the BCSO statement. “The caller stated that he had received the reverse 911 alert, and when he walked his property, his dog had located Becker asleep in a creek bed.”

Deputies arrived and took Becker into custody without incident. EMS was called to the scene “to evaluate Becker for injuries sustained during his night on the run in the wilderness.”

I've lived in this small hill country town for almost 4 years. We are pretty much 'crime free" but drug crimes and things like this are creeping in. This incident is only about 8 miles from my house. I carry every where I go. And things like this are the reason.
