FORT BEND COUNTY CRIME STOPPERS
Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers will pay cash rewards for information leading to arrests in the following cases:
At 7:40 p.m. on March 2, a Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office deputy was called to a Best Buy located in the 5340 block of State Highway 99 regarding an attempted theft committed by a male suspect.
Store personnel told the deputy the perpetrator walked over to the electronics area and picked up two X-Box 1 game consoles. The man then walked toward the exit when an employee approached him.
The suspect fled from inside the store, out of the grasp of the employee and left the parking lot in an unknown vehicle.
While the suspect left empty-handed, he is related to two other cases in the general area.
He left the area in a black, four-door Lexus NFI.
The man is described as a black male, about 5-feet, 10-inches tall. He was wearing a tan hat, a hoodie with a blue shirt with writing on the left chest area, and blue jeans with a clip containing keys.
In the early morning hours of Saturday, April 23, deputies were called to the Enclave at Woodbridge Apartments, located in the 15000 block of West Airport Boulevard concerning several burglaries of motor vehicles at the complex. It was determined that 17 cars had been burglarized at that scene alone.
Also that morning, deputies were notified that nine vehicles had been burglarized at another apartment complex, the Advenir Apartments, also located in the 15000 block of West Airport Boulevard. Another six vehicles were burglarized at Pebble Creek Ranch apartments, located in the 15200 block of nearby Voss Road.
Detectives believe all 32 break-ins are tied together. Two black males were spotted running and jumping a gate at the Pebble Creek Ranch Apartments. They appeared to be teens and were wearing gray-colored clothing and gloves. One of them had long hair. They jumped the fence next to the Jack-in-the-Box off of Highway 6 and Voss Road.
With few exceptions, entry was made into the vehicles by smashing windows. As well, almost all of the victims said they did not have any items stolen from their vehicles. Some items were taken, including a checkbook from one victim. Nevertheless, victims noted that replacing smashed windows is still a costly expense.
Theft of credit cards
The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office received a call at 11:15 a.m. Saturday, March 12, from a resident who said her credit cards had been stolen and used elsewhere.
The victim said she was shopping at the Kroger in the 11500 block of Highway 6 near West Airport Boulevard. A male approached her and asked her for her assistance in locating a certain brand of baby food. After the male departed, the victim discovered her wallet had been stolen from her purse, which was in her shopping basket.
Within minutes, the stolen credit card was used at the Target in the 2700 block of Eldridge Parkway in Houston. Two men were shown making multiple transactions with the card.
In a previous case linked to the perpetrators, a woman’s wallet was stolen between the hours of 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3, while she was shopping at Home Goods, located in the 23500 block of Westheimer Parkway. That victim’s stolen credit card was used at the Target located in the 23700 block of Westheimer Parkway.
The first subject is described as a black male in his mid-30s. He has facial blemishes, a thin mustache and he was wearing a multi-colored, striped polo shirt and jeans.
The second subject is described as a black male in his late 30s to early 40s. He was wearing a red baseball cap, blue plaid button down shirt and white jeans.

Four male perpetrators entered the business, displayed handguns and stole an undisclosed amount of money.
The suspects in this case were last seen fleeing the business on foot toward the parking lot.
