Police recover stolen truck

Traffic stop leads to pot bust

Cleburne police responded to reports of a stolen vehicle and business burglary at 9:53 a.m. Friday in the 1600 block of North Main Street. 

Someone accessed the business through a window. They stole computers, a digital camera, a TV, walkie talkies and other items. They also stole a silver 2007 Chevrolet Trail Blazer from the property. Police later found the truck in the 1700 block of West Henderson Street. 

An officer performed a traffic stop on a tractor trailer at 9:29 a.m. the same day in the 1800 block of East Henderson Street. 

The officer noticed a strong scent of marijuana emitting from the truck cab. When asked to exit the vehicle, the driver allegedly threw a bag of marijuana under the truck. The marijuana landed against the curb at the officer’s feet, according to reports. 

The officer arrested Melvin Cornelius Cross Jr., 42, of Houston, on a charge of possession of marijuana. 

Police responded to a two-vehicle accident with injuries at 5:50 p.m. Feb. 4 at the intersection of West Henderson and Westmeadow streets. 

The driver of a Chrysler PT Cruiser was traveling south on Westmeadow Drive on a green light, according to reports. 

The driver of a second PT Cruiser, traveling west on West Henderson Street, allegedly ran a red light and crashed into the first car. That driver told police he could not see because the sun was in his eyes.

The driver of that car suffered minor injuries, according to police reports, but declined medical treatment. Rescue workers transported a passenger in that car to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Cleburne. 

The driver and passenger of the car struck were also transported to Texas Health Cleburne for minor injuries.

Police responded to a single-vehicle accident with injuries at 3:05 p.m. Thursday in the 2600 block of Pipeline Road.

The driver of a Ford Taurus failed to control his speed and struck a utility pole, according to reports. An ambulance transported the man to Texas Health Cleburne. Details of his injuries have not been released.
