Siblings arrested same day, unrelated charges

Ennis siblings Justin and Ashley Gresham, 26 and 24, nearly spent their holiday season together by sharing a cell after both were arrested Tuesday, though on unrelated charges.
Ashley Gresham was charged with forgery and released on a personal recognizance bond due to being pregnant. Ennis police picked up Gresham on reports of using her friend’s bank account over a period of approximately one month’s time.
According to Det. Sgt. Mike Hopson, the complainant stated about $1,000 had been withdrawn from the account for Gresham’s personal use. Hopson said video surveillance was recorded as evidence of her in the act of withdrawing the money.
The complainant filed her report Sept. 18 and an arrest warrant was obtained following a lengthy investigation. Hopson said it was not known where Gresham was residing but once she was located at a local apartment complex she was taken into custody.
Officer Jason York finally caught up with Ashley’s brother, Justin Gresham, nine months after his offense. The suspect refused to stop after cutting through a parking lot to avoid a red light back in February.
Hopson said York observed Justin Gresham drive through the Kwik Pick parking lot at N. Kaufman St. and Martin Luther King Dr. York activated his patrol vehicle lights to stop the vehicle but the driver accelerated and fled from York.
According to police, a car chase through the historic district north of downtown ended near the suspect’s home where he fled on foot, escaping capture.
Hopson said police obtained an arrest warrant for evading but he was not taken into custody for that charge until nine months later when York located the suspect in Ennis.
York knew Gresham was still wanted for the outstanding warrant, and he and Officer Brad Sherrard worked together to take Gresham into custody, which was accomplished despite the suspect’s efforts to evade capture again by running from police.
During Gresham’s arrest it was discovered Rockwall County police were also looking for him on an outstanding warrant for evading arrest.
Justin Gresham was charged with evading arrest.
