Cinco Ranch burglars busted by alert witnesses

By LeaAnne Klentzman

Neighborhood eyewitnesses and an observant sheriff’s deputy snag two burglary suspects in the north Fort Bend County community of Cinco Ranch.

It all began with a burglary spree on January 29, in the 2700 block of Zachary Bend Lane in the Woodhaven section of Cinco Ranch, said Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel.

Deputies responded to 911 calls in the area and when they arrived they were told by a neighbor of the home that had been burglarized that she had seen a black SUV with one person in it and saw one other person get into the vehicle and leave explained, Haenel.

Then things began to fall together, because earlier that day, in the 3900 block of Diamondale Court, a suspicious vehicle was reported and photographed by a concerned resident. Shortly thereafter a deputy arrived to answer an alarm call. The concerned resident was able to show her suspicious vehicle photo to the deputy. It just so happened that the picture was of a black SUV. All deputies in the area were alerted to the description of the vehicle and they found one matching that description in the parking lot of a retail store on Westheimer Parkway, said Haenel.

The two occupants were detained as deputies investigated. The witnesses were able to identify the vehicle as the suspicious one they had seen in their neighborhood as well as identifying one of the occupants as the man they had seen at the burglarized home.

The arrests of Christopher Mayfield, 22, of Katy, and Floyd Wilson, 24, of Houston have cleared two residential burglary cases in the Cinco Ranch area of Fort Bend County. “Fort Bend County detectives searched one of the suspect’s homes and recovered stolen property that helped clear eight Harris County Sheriff’s Office cases,” said Haenel.

Both men are facing two counts of Burglary of a Habitation in Fort Bend County and numerous other charges in Harris County.

Mayfield and Wilson were booked into the Fort Bend County Jail with $10,000 bonds on each Fort Bend burglary. Mayfield posted bail, while Wilson remained in the jail.
