On Tuesday November 15, 2016 at approximately 7pm, officers from multiple different agencies, to include the Webster, Alvin, Friendswood, and League City Police Departments, were working together to arrest a wanted suspect at a motel located along the 800 block of West Bay Area Boulevard in the City of Webster, Harris County. The wanted suspect, a 38 year old white male, and a known violent offender, was observed sitting in the front seat of a vehicle in the parking lot.
