LPD News

On February 2, 2016 at 4:36 p.m., Longview Police were attempting to serve an arrest warrant on 28 year-old Trevorris Rashomique Woodard, of Longview. Officers were aware the suspect had an outstanding warrant related to a narcotics case. When officers attempted to make a traffic stop on a 2010 Dodge Charger the suspect was a passenger in, the driver of that vehicle fled the scene. During the pursuit, the suspect threw a handgun out the front passenger window of the Charger. The driver, identified as 28 year-old Taneeka Channee Woodard, of Longview, led police on a short pursuit before surrendering at the intersection of Carter and Nelson Streets. Taneeka Woodard was arrested for Evading Arrest in a Vehicle (State Jail Felony). She also had an outstanding Motion to Revoke Probation warrant. She was transported to the Gregg County Jail without incident. Police also located two young children in the backseat of the Charger. Trevorris Woodard was arrested on several charges including Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon (Felony 3), Abandoning or Endangering a Child X2 (State Jail Felony), and the outstanding felony warrant for Possession of a Controlled Substance PG1 4g<200g. He was transported to the Gregg County Jail without incident. Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace Tim Bryan set bonds totaling $450,000 early this morning.

The arrest warrant stemmed from an Armed Subject call on January 22, 2016. Officers located the suspect in a vehicle and during the traffic stop the suspect ran from police. Police were unable to locate the suspect. However, Officers located a large amount of narcotics and two stolen firearms inside the vehicle. Officers were able to identify one of the two suspects in the vehicle as Trevorris Woodard due to the fact the officer had just transported the suspect to the jail days before on a separate narcotics arrest.

Longview Police Chief Mike Bishop would like to thank the officers involved in the arrest and apprehension of Trevorris Woodard. Chief Bishop would also like to thank the U.S. Marshals Service for their assistance in apprehending this violent, wanted felon.
