During the operation Wednesday morning in the area of Imperial Valley and FM 1960, investigators say they observed Emmanuel Augustine soliciting an undercover female deputy.

He was arrested at the scene and was identified as a deputy constable with the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office, the same agency working the joint sting operation with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
