March 29 Odessa police arrested 18-year-old Andrew Diaz and charged him with evading arrest in a vehicle, a third-degree felony; resisting arrest, a class A misdemeanor; and possession of a controlled substance (marijuana), a class B misdemeanor. Police also arrested 18-year-old Emily Morgan and charged her with tampering with physical evidence, a third-degree felony; and possession of a controlled substance (marijuana), a class B misdemeanor. Officers attempted to pull over a red 2011 Nissan Rogue in the 1000 block of North Dixie Boulevard at 6 p.m. March 29, but the driver refused to stop and actively evaded police after they activated their emergency lights and sirens. The vehicle eventually stopped in the 1100 block of Del Rio Drive and the driver exited the vehicle and attempted to evade officers again on foot but was immediately taken to the ground and placed into custody. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Diaz and the front passenger was identified as Morgan. Police could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. Diaz was searched and found to be in possession of a digital scale with marijuana residue on it. Investigation revealed that Morgan removed about 9.7 grams of marijuana from her purse and threw it inside of the vehicle in an attempt to hide it. While Diaz was handcuffed, he began to resist transportation by striking his feet violently against the patrol unit interior security cage. Diaz, 1107 Del Rio Drive, was being held March 31 at the Ector County Detention Center on $30,000 bond. Morgan, 1311 E. 57th St., was released March 30 from the Ector County Detention Center on $15,500 bond.
