New Territory robbers busted
By LeaAnne Klentzman
On a Saturday in late January, Sheriff’s deputies were called to investigate an armed robbery in the 6500 block of Kendall Creek Drive in the New Territory subdivision. Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel said, “Detectives met with three victims who said they were standing in front of one of their homes and saw a vehicle drive past them. Then, the same vehicle came back and stopped.” One of the three got out of the car, pointed a gun at the residents and ordered them to the ground, according to Haenel. That armed man took their wallets and cell phones and then the suspect got back into the car fled the area.
An investigation that that spanned from Fort Bend County to Harris County and the Houston Police Department revealed that these three suspects used a car stolen out of Houston to rob the people in New Territory leaving a string of robbery cases across the three jurisdictions. Evidence obtained by crime scene investigators linked the cases together and helped identify the suspects.
Haenel said, “Two of the suspects are already in the custody of the Houston Police Department in connection with other cases. Those suspects are Trevon Davis, 18, and Melvin Delane, 17. The third suspect, Jermaine Smith, 17, was arrested by Fort Bend on a warrant.” All three suspects are from Houston.
