From Abilene Police spokesman George Spindler:
Just after midnight Sunday, Officer Chris Collins contacted a motorist at North 11th and Beech Street for a traffic violation. During his investigation he also contacted a female passenger who identified herself multiple times by a certain name and date of birth. But the female later identified herself by a different name and date of birth. Officer Collins was unable to identify the female subject correctly. His suspicions were verified when analysis of her fingerprints confirmed she had lied about her identity. The subject had multiple warrants for her arrest, including a parole warrant, and two felony warrants for second-degree aggravated assault and criminal mischief. The subject was arrested on her warrants and for failure to identify.
Just before 1 a.m. Monday, Officer Brian Poynor contacted a motorist in the 1300 block of Elm Street for a traffic violation. During his investigation he contacted a male driver. A records check revealed the driver to have outstanding warrants related to theft charges. During the arrest, the driver advised the officer that he had a revolver adjacent to the driver seat. The weapon, a .22 caliber revolver, was seized. Officer Poynor confirmed the driver was a convicted felon. The driver was arrested for his warrants and for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
At about 4:12 a.m. Monday, Officer Gabe Thompson contacted a motorist at North 8th and Walnut Street for a traffic violation. During his investigation he contacted a male driver and soon observed what appeared to be two small bags of marijuana by the driver?s feet. Officer Thompson also discovered that the driver was using a false name during the identification process. A records check confirmed Officer Thompson?s suspicions. The records check revealed the driver had two outstanding warrants. One of those warrants stemmed from an older APD investigation from 2011 for the offense of evading arrest. The other involved a municipal warrant. The investigation also revealed the bags contained a small quantity of marijuana. The driver was arrested on his warrants and charged with failure to identify and for possession of marijuana.
