KENDRICKKENDRICKFRED – The search continues for a Tyler County man wanted on warrants out of two counties.

According to Tyler County Sheriff Bryan Weatherford, on last Thursday, Jan. 11, deputies with the Tyler County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at the residence of Roy F Kendrick, IV, in Fred. The warrant was in reference to an ongoing investigation of stolen property, Weatherford said.

During the search, law enforcement not only found stolen property but drugs, Weatherford said. The deputies discovered that the man they were looking for had absconded just before their arrival, and although Pct. 4 Constable Anthony Ross searched the area for him, he was nowhere to be found.

Deputies, during the search, were able to seize two stolen ATVs, a .20-gauge shotgun and approximately 133.6 grams of a crystal-like substance and a red liquid container which field-tested positive for methamphetamines.

Later that day, Texas Game Wardens notified deputies with TCSO of a game camera photograph taken of the suspect, on a private hunting club land, located behind his residence, during the execution of the search warrant.

Last week, Weatherford and TCSO discovered a stolen Honda ATV, taken from a hunting camp in the Fred area, at the residence Kendrick is known to stay. While they could not locate him, a woman, Brandi Nicholle Brown, who was seen approaching the residence, was arrested, after giving multiple false names and other misleading identifying information.

Kendrick, 31, currently has five active arrest warrants for felony burglary of a building out of Tyler County and warrants for controlled substance possession; unlawful possession of a firearm by felon and two misdemeanor warrants. He also has active arrest warrants out of neighboring Hardin County for felony burglary of a vehicle and theft.

Kendrick is a White male standing 5’11” and weighs 220 lbs. He has hazel eyes, brown hair and tattoos on his arms, chest and back. Anyone with information as to Kendrick’s whereabouts can contact the Tyler County Sheriff’s Office at 409-283-2172 or Crime Stoppers at 936-639-TIPS. Tipsters who provide information to Crime Stoppers leading to an arrest may be eligible for a cash reward, and the process in entirely anonymous. Crime Stoppers also has a website, www.639TIPS.com, in order to submit tips.
