HOUSTON – A felon out on bond had his bail revoked after he falsified a drug test using fake urine, police said, and authorities are now searching for him.

Officials with the Houston Police Department said Warren Tramelle Brown II was charged in July with two counts of felon in possession of a firearm after being found with two assault rifles. They added that Brown was additionally charged with retaliation after threatening an officer while being taken to jail.

Department officials said Brown, a documented gang member, has an extensive criminal history that includes charges of possession of marijuana, burglary and making a terroristic threat, among numerous others.

Police said Brown posted bail following the charges in July, but had numerous bond conditions and was ordered to wear an ankle monitor.

On Tuesday, Brown was required to submit a urine sample after court, but the violation states he used a plastic bottle containing an “unknown yellow liquid” to falsify his drug test, police said.

Because of the violation, officers said Brown’s bail was revoked for the weapons charges.

After receiving a tampering alert, officials said they're investigating if Brown unlawfully removed his court-ordered ankle monitor.

Police are asking anyone with information on Brown’s whereabouts to call 713-222-8477.
