Codey Lee Krustchinsky

Early Wednesday morning, just before 1:30, Liberty County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to a disturbance involving vehicles on US-90. The deputies were told that a gold in color Ford pickup was being chased by a white in color Nissan. The vehicles went through the city of Dayton in to the city limits of Liberty. As the vehicles turned left on Main Street in Liberty, a Liberty County Sheriffs deputy conducted a traffic stop on the white Nissan. The driver was identified as Codey Lee Krustchinsky, 29. The driver told deputies he was the one that had called 911 because the Ford pickup had tried to run him off the road. However, it was quickly learned in fact, it was the driver of the pickup that had called 911. The driver of the pickup had advised LCSO dispatch that the chase began in Harris County where they had gotten in a verbal dispute. A pistol was seen, in plain view in the console cup holder in Krustchinsky’s vehicle. To ensure the safety of law enforcement, the driver of the Nissan was removed from the vehicle. The pistol was identified as a Beretta 9 mm. During their initial investigation, deputies learned Krustchinsky was a convicted felon, convicted for Intoxicated Assault with a motor vehicle. Krustchinsky was arrested. He was charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon – Third Degree Felony, and Possession of a Controlled Substance – Second Degree Felony. Codey Lee Krustchinsky was taken to the Liberty County Jail without incident. When the vehicle was inventoried the corporal found a plastic bag containing 6.2 grams of Methamphetamine near the cup holder.
