A Good Samaritan approached Parker County Sheriff’s deputies Sunday afternoon with a wallet which was found near the boat dock at Old Tin Top Road.
The act of kindness turned into an arrest of the owner of the wallet after a brief investigation.
Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said the deputies discovered three additional identification cards inside the wallet belonging to male individuals from Utah, California and Texas.
The owner of the wallet was contacted and met with deputies later that same afternoon. Sheriff’s deputies questioned the man about the additional driver’s licenses.
The suspect, identified as Clayton Neil Stewart, 18, told deputies he “found” the identifications and kept them in his possession.
Stewart was arrested and charged with fraudulent use/possession of identifying information, a state jail felony.
A search of Stewart’s vehicle revealed suspected Hydrocodone tablets (totaling approximately five grams), marijuana (totaling approximately 10 grams) and drug paraphernalia. He was additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
Stewart’s was released Monday after posting an $8,500 total bond. Fowler said the case will be filed with the District Attorney’s Office for consideration of prosecution.
