Jennings Arrested Again On Multiple Charges

Press Release From Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office

The Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office first launched an investigation in early January in response to stolen luxury cars in Hopkins County, Texas. During the initial investigation, authorities obtained an arrest warrant for Everett Jennings. They later arrested Mr. Jennings on this warrant. Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Investigators have been working diligently since the inception of the investigation.

Recently, Investigators have obtained additional evidence of witness tampering, online impersonation, additional stolen property, and a deeper understanding of the volume of property stolen, changing identification numbers, and then posting the items for sale online via at least one stolen identity. Investigators have learned Mr. Jennings has had this person’s credit cards and driver’s licenses. These identification and financial items were left in the individual residence when they arrested him. The individual was a tenant of Mr. Jennings at the time of his arrest and was never able to return to the property.

 

 

 

 

 

New evidence has resulted in several search warrants for local properties being issued and executed in the last few days at properties associated with Mr. Jennings. During these searches, two stolen UTVs (side-by-side) were found with swapped identification numbers; however, the true identity of the vehicles was discovered. These vehicles were confirmed stolen. Investigators found two trailers with altered identification numbers that were also identified and confirmed stolen. These items were stolen from around North Texas, including from Sulphur Springs.

During the recent flurry of information and recoveries, the monitoring company of Mr. Jennings’s court-ordered GPS also reported getting numerous “back plate tamper” alerts from his GPS device. When they attempted to find it, they reported the last known location in the parking lot of a cruise ship terminal in Galveston. Hopkins County Investigators located a vehicle belonging to Mr. Jennings on Galveston Island parked in Port Authority Parking lots used for cruise ship passengers. Investigators presented this new information to the appropriate court, and they determined that Mr. Jennings’s bond was insufficient and issued arrest warrants. Additionally, Texas Rangers sought and received an arrest warrant for tampering with a witness.

Mr. Jennings was arrested this morning in Galveston after returning to the port on a cruise ship. He is currently in Galveston County Jail. This investigation is ongoing.
