Weatherford police, acting on a tip, said they found a man originally convicted of murder and now wanted on a parole violation warrant. Police said they found Feodore Salazar, 50, of Weatherford, Friday evening at a residence in the 1200 block of West Water Street and took him into custody.

 

Teen assaulted

Police around 10:30 p.m. Friday were reportedly called to a residence on West Spring Street and met with a 16-year-old female who claimed she had been assaulted 30 minutes earlier by a known person in the 800 block of Sloan Street.

Possession of a controlled substance

A Weatherford police officer reportedly stopped a white Ford vehicle around 2:30 a.m. Saturday in the 1300 block of North Main Street. Four people were inside the vehicle, according to reports. The officer said a citation was issued the driver and consent to search the vehicle was given. The officer allegedly found a small amount of methamphetamine on Richard Kent Brock Jr., 31, of Azle. Brock was placed under arrest for possession of controlled substance and transported to Parker County Jail, where he was released to jail staff. He remained jailed under $7,500 bond as of Tuesday evening, according to jail records.

Warrant arrest
