HOUSTON COUNTY: Houston County Sheriff Department arrested 41 year old Brandon Eugene Bagwell at 9:54 PM last evening and booked him into the Houston County Jail.
Brandon Eugene Bagwell was arrested and charged with Larcent/Theft/Pickpocket and Improper Transfer of Firearm. Bonds were set at $ 7,500.00 each. Bagwell was released from the Houston County Jail at 6:06 AM this morning on bond.
Bagwell is a former Houston County Sheriff Deputy and former Taylor Police Officer. The charges stem from when Bagwell resigned from Taylor Police Department he never returned a weapon. After numerous requests by Taylor Police Chief and the weapon never being returned, the Taylor Police Chief contact Criminal Investigation Division of Houston County Sheriff Department.
After Investigator Chris Summerlin conducted an investigation it was found the weapon had been pawned at a pawn shop allegedly by Bagwell. Investigator Harper obtained arrest warrants for Bagwell and he was arrested.
Bagwell is an announced and qualified candidate for Houston County Commission District 3. This commission seat, the incumbent is Ricky Herring. There are a total of 5 candidates, to include Herring, seeking election for District 3 Houston County Commissioner.
ALLOW ME TO BE CLEAR - CRYSTAL CLEAR
Anyone who reads RSN is fully aware that Rickey Stokes and Ricky Herring have bumped heads, major time. In fact, I feel Ricky Herring betrayed me.
With that said, I want it CRYSTAL CLEAR, Ricky Herring had nothing to do with this case, this case being reported to the Houston County Sheriff Department, the investigation or the arrest of Brandon Eugene Bagwell.
This case is not politics, not made because Bagwell is a candidate for Houston County Commission and
Sgt. Ricky Herring of Houston County Sheriff Department, Commissioner Ricky Herring of the Houston County Commission, or Ricky Herring as an individual has had NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS CASE.
Bagwell will be pleading NOT GUILTY and this case goes back to 2020 weapon. Bagwell will remain a candidate in the election.
