Motorcycle Chase on Hwy 59 Ends in Arrest of St. Louis Man for Felony Evading and Unlawful Weapon Carrying

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX, Oct. 20, 2023 – A high-speed chase involving multiple law enforcement agencies led to the arrest of a St. Louis man late Thursday night. The chase initiated after a Splendora Police Officer assigned to the Criminal Interdiction Unit attempted to pull over a motorcycle for lacking a visible license plate.

The incident began just after 9 p.m. on Hwy 59 near FM 2090. Initially, the motorcycle pulled onto the shoulder as customary during a traffic stop. However, the bike soon sped away, reaching speeds exceeding 120 mph.

A pursuit ensued, with the motorcycle heading south on Hwy 59. Two Patton Village Police Officers later joined the chase but were unable to stop the bike. Eventually, a Deputy with Precinct 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden’s Office succeeded in blocking the motorcycle’s reentry onto the freeway, compelling the suspect to stop. The individual was then safely detained.

The motorcycle had previously been reported stolen in Illinois. The suspect was subsequently transported and booked into the Montgomery County Jail in Conroe.

Dorsey Cardell Alford, 31, of St. Louis, MO, has been charged with third-degree felony Evading Arrest/Detention with Vehicle and class A misdemeanor Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon. Bond information was not available at the time of this posting.
