MCTXSheriff Arrest Organized Crime Suspects
On Sunday, February 5, 2023, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a Burglary of a Vehicle in the Town Center Zone in The Woodlands. While investigating the car burglary, Deputies learned eight other vehicle burglaries occurred in the business districts along I-45, in addition to the Westwood Magnolia Parkway Improvement District Area along FM 1488 and near FM 2978. Through diligent, yet rapid work Deputies were able to track down the suspects, and placed them in custody at FM 1488 and Kuykendahl as they were headed back toward their home in the Houston area. Through the investigation, Deputies were also able to discover these suspects were responsible for the theft of a vehicle from the Xscape Movie Theatre in Conroe. Deputies worked with the Houston Police Department and were able to find the stolen vehicle. After a short pursuit, a fourth adult suspect was taken into custody.
The three suspects (two adults and one juvenile) arrested by the Sheriff’s Office were charged with Burglary of a Vehicle and Engaging in Organized Crime.
Deputies and Detectives are still on multiple scenes processing evidence and conducting interviews. More information will be released tomorrow.
While we encourage our residents to take your keys, lock your car, and hide your belongings, we know there are those who will continue to seek to victimize hard-working residents and visitors to our county. We are proud of the dedicated efforts of our personnel to pursue all available leads to hold accountable those responsible.
We would like to thank the Houston Police Department and the Shenandoah Police Department for their efforts during this investigation.
