A County Road 4711 disturbance involving a firearm results in the arrest of two men from the Denton area, according to sheriff’s reports.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded just before 5:15 p.m. to a report of a disturbance involving a firearm on County Road 4711. A caller told dispatchers that shots had been fired from a weapon. Upon arrival at the location, officers were told the suspects had fled, one on foot and one in a Ford pickup. Deputy Drew Fisher recalled seeing a truck matching that description on State Highway 11 at the end of CR 4711. Deputies detained 43-year-old Chun Zachary Lambert of The Colony on SH 11 at CR 4711 by the truck, and found 38-year-old Nader Tokleh of Flower Mound just down CR 4711, and detained him as well.
Deputies were told both men traveled together in the truck to the CR 4711 residence to pick up another vehicle and a disturbance occurred. During the disturbance, the driver of the truck allegedly brandished, pointed and later fired a firearm. Both men allegedly fled the scene.
Lambert agreed to let deputies search the truck. Deputies reported finding 5.938 grams of suspected methamphetamine in the vehicle both Lambert and Tokleh were reported to have arrived at the location in. When neither admitted to possessing the substance, both Lambert and Tokleh were charged with possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. Lambert was also accused of driving the pickup through a metal pipe gate, causing property damage, deputies noted in arrest reports. Deputies observed a pistol holder in the driveway near the gate; they believe the firearm was thrown from the vehicle as Lambert departed from it, Fisher and Sgt. Tanner Steward alleged in arrest reports.
When asked for ID, Lambert reportedly told deputies his wallet was in his back pocket. Deputies later learned he was in possession of someone else’s wallet which contained 13 items of identifying information.
Consequently, Lambert was booked into Hopkins County jail on two of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges, on fraudulent use or possession of identifying information charge, one possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge and failure to identify as a fugitive for justice, as well as violation of parole and a warrant for theft of property valued at $2,500 or more but less than $30,000 charge, according to arrest and jail reports. He remained in Hopkins County jail just before noon Thursday, Jan. 14, in lieu of $25,000 bond each on the aggravated assault, fraud and controlled substance charges, according to jail reports.
Tokleh was booked into Hopkins County jail, where he remained just before lunch Thursday, Jan. 14. Bond was set at $30,000 on the possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge, according to jail reports.
