Report: Man with ax nabbed on drug count

November 24, 2012

A 911 call about a suspicious person walking in the 3700 block of Montgomery Drive carrying an ax led to a felony drug arrest, according to Hood County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose.

Cory Wayne Long, 27, of the 1200 block of Waterview Road in the Comanche Harbor subdivision south of Granbury, was “found to be in possession of under a gram of methamphetamine,” Rose said of the incident that occurred at approximately 10:30 p.m. last Wednesday. “During the contact deputies discovered Long had a warrant for his arrest for possession of marijuana.”

Long indicated the ax was no cause for concern, telling deputies that he had borrowed it and was returning it to a neighbor, Rose noted.

“I’m sure his plan looked good on paper, but he may have forgotten that it was late at night and dark outside,” Rose said.

Bond for Long’s state jail felony charge of possession of a controlled substance was set at $7,500. His Class B marijuana count has a bond of $5,001.


During a traffic stop by deputies at about 6 p.m. last Wednesday, deputies arrested a 23-year-old Hood County man on a third-degree felony charge of felon in possession of a firearm, Rose stated.

Christopher Eric Patton, of the 2800 block of Forest Park Drive in the Oak Trail Shores subdivision northwest of Granbury, was pulled over in the 3600 block of Contrary Creek Road, Rose said.

“During the stop (Patton), who is a convicted felon, was found to be in possession of a .32-caliber semi-automatic handgun,” Rose said. “Patton also had a Granbury Police Department warrant for disorderly conduct.”

Patton’s bond on the felony charge was set at $10,000. The disorderly conduct charge is a Class C misdemeanor with a bond of $629.


A recent Hood County resident who was the subject of a Crime Stoppers report as being a fugitive from justice was located in the Tarrant County Jail and served with an arrest warrant, Rose said.

Rufus Alexander Wolf, 31, a convicted sex offender, is facing a third-degree felony charge after he failed to notify the Hood County Sheriff’s Office of an address change.

Wolf was later transferred to the Hood County Jail, where his bond was set at $10,000.
