FRIENDSWOOD — A Houston man was arrested at a Friendswood grocery store and charged with possession of child pornography as well as methamphetamine, synthetic marijuana and Valium.
Officers from Galveston County Precinct 8, Texas Department of Public Safety and Friendswood Police Department served a Galveston County arrest warrant to 27-year-old Jesse Andrew Burton in the parking lot of the Kroger store on North Friendswood Drive.
The Friendswood department said police were tipped off that Burton was in North Galveston County and possibly working for United Parcel Service. Police surveillance units spotted a United Parcel Service truck in the grocery store parking lot as well as a man matching Burton’s description, the Friendswood police department said.
Once officers detained him, police found Burton had methamphetamine, synthetic marijuana and Valium with him. The original warrant for Burton charged him with possession of child pornography, a charge originating in Galveston County, the department said.
Burton’s bonds total $14,500. He was in the Friendswood city jail awaiting transfer to Galveston County Wednesday afternoon.
