Citizen report leads to arrest of suspected thieves
An observant citizen witnessed two pieces of equipment being stolen from a vehicle in the Academy parking lot in New Caney on 8/11/22. The citizen called dispatch to report the theft. An officer located the vehicle and detained 3 people that were in the truck. The person who had the equipment stolen from him happened to drive by the scene and recognized the truck and his equipment. Both males were placed into custody for Felony Theft and one of the subjects was in possession of Methamphetamine.
Concerned citizens definitely make a difference! See something say something!
Interesting that this was posted. I was literally just wondering when reading the Felon of the Week post if these posts accomplish anything. I realize this isn't the same thing but still good to know that seeing and saying something does at least pay off sometimes.
ginx : Yeah they would have dismembered that issue. We are so lucky to live in a free world where we get a slap on the hand and not lose it like other areas of the planet. Is it wrong to think that we could get a free the people movement to let those who hate or just can't assimilate to get granted a specific travel the world plan grant? So they can exercise their belief systems in 3rd world countries and then show up for citizenship to the USA? Chances are half of them or part of them might not make it back.
@Kreativecat : Amen to that. I have seen the top guy lurking around my sister's neighborhood (Shoreview) a few times and have called him in at least 3 times.
