The Somervell County Sheriff’s Office assisted a unit from the Region VI Special Operations Group last Friday in arresting a 49-year-old Somervell County resident — “a dangerous subject” wanted on an active criminal warrant out of Ellis County.

A news release provided by Chief Deputy Dwayne Griffin states that Vincent Dylan Matthews “voluntarily surrendered and was taken straight to the Ellis County Jail” by the special operations unit, which was attached to the Texas Attorney General’s Office.

Matthews had an active warrant for “continuous violence against the family,” according to Griffin.

Shortly after 4 a.m. on Jan. 24, the “SCSO received a call from a unit attached to the Attorney General’s office. The unit was requesting assistance on the apprehension of a dangerous subject with violent tendencies and a lengthy criminal history.”

The release also states, “Due to the subject’s propensity to violence, the Attorney General requested help from the Region VI Special Operations Group. This is a team of officers comprised from Hood County Sheriff’s Office, Granbury PD (Police Department), and Somervell County Sheriff’s Office which can be activated in high risk situations.”
