MCTXSheriff Arrests Three in Burglary Spree
On May 22, 2020 Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the 22000 block of Sun Haven Lane in Porter, Texas in reference to an Assist Agency / Burglary in Progress. MCSO Dispatch advised that, while on his way home, a Harris County Precinct 3 Deputy Constable observed a suspicious vehicle parked in front of a residence. The Deputy Constable reported that when he approached the vehicle, one individual exited the vehicle and fled on foot, leaving the vehicle occupied by two other individuals who were detained at that time. As Deputies from Montgomery County were en route to the scene, the third individual who fled the vehicle was located nearby and detained. The trio were identified as Andrew Surber (21yoa W/M), Jaivion Hargrove (20yoa B/M), and Javon Shedd Callis (20yoa B/M.)
While the situation was unfolding, multiple Suspicious Person and Burglary of Vehicle calls were being received by MCSO Dispatch from residents in the immediate area of this scene. Deputies then began making contact with residents in the area to determine the extent of the possible vehicle burglaries. Through the help of security footage from multiple residents, the Deputies were able to identify the detained individuals as suspects in several of the burglaries that were reported in the area. The Deputies further found the suspects to be in possession of controlled substances, and several items known to be instruments of burglary. After contacting the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, two counts of Burglary of a Vehicle were accepted for all three suspects. An additional charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance was accepted for Jaivion. The three were transported to the Montgomery County Jail, and booked in without incident.
