CLEVELAND, TX – The Noble Garvey House in Cleveland, TX, is a registered Texas landmark.

Noble Garvey built it back in 1915. He was a bank president and a leading Cleveland citizen back in the first half of the twentieth century.

But this story really begins this past Tuesday afternoon with a traffic stop that apparently led to the discovery of outstanding warrants and several weapons.

That led Montgomery County Precinct 4 constables and Cleveland police officers to a home that the owner didn’t know had been burglarized, which then led investigators to a mobile home where they expected to find another weapon and another suspect.

They found the suspect, but not the weapon.

Officers ended up at the Garvey House in search of the stolen laptop, which they found, along with a meth lab in the bathroom, which is why we call this story ‘Cleveland Rocks.’ Get it?
