VIDOR — It was a trick and certainly not a treat for a man in Vidor on Halloween night.
Police Chief Rod Carroll tells KFDM/Fox 4 News, officers came up with a plan to serve a felony warrant on 29-year-old Jonathan Bean.
They spotted him a week before Halloween but say he ran away.
They learned he was staying at a relative’s home, and according to the chief, Bean has a history of running and hiding from police.
So officers knocked on the door at about 7:30 Halloween night, announcing ‘trick or treat.’
A short time later, Bean opened the door and saw a Vidor Police officer standing on the front porch.
After a short period of time, police took him into custody on 13 warrants from Vidor and Orange County.
Chief Carroll says the moral of the story: “If you have felony warrants, do not open the door for the kids dressed as cops.”
