Flour Bluff Man Given Seven-Year Prison Sentence After Guilty Plea

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - The man arrested Friday after an extensive search in the Flour Bluff area plead guilty Wednesday morning to one count of tampering with evidence, and will now be going to a Texas Department of Corrections facility for seven years.

Michael Ryder was arrested just before 3 p.m. Friday at a home in the 9400 block of Waxwing. Officers had been searching for him for hours, attempting to serve a warrant for his arrest. Eventually, Ryder was found hiding in a closet at the home on Waxwing. Police said he was originally hiding in the attic, and when he heard police coming, he punched a hole in the ceiling and dropped down into the closet.

Ryder had been indicted by a grand jury a week prior to his arrest, and was facing charges of aggravated robbery, criminal mischief and tampering with evidence from a case back in November of 2013.

In the 214th District Court Wednesday morning, Ryder plead guilty to the charge of tampering with evidence. The other two charges were dismissed, and Ryder was sentenced to seven years in prison.
