In the early hours of Wednesday morning, January 2, 2013, a resident in the Cinco Ranch subdivision called 911 and reported seeing what he thought were suspicious circumstances. He told deputies that he had witnessed a couple of males dressed in dark clothing entering a parked car down the block from his home.
At about the same time, another deputy in the north area of the county had stopped a suspicious vehicle in the Westheimer Lakes subdivision near White Frye Road and Westheimer Lakes Boulevard. During the traffic stop stolen property was recovered but the two suspicious pedestrians were never found.
These two incidents are close in proximity and believed to be related. Deputies are seeking information on the other two suspects believed to be involved in the burglaries. Austin Thompson, 19, of the Katy area was arrested that night. He faces five different charges; Theft, Burglary of a Motor Vehicle ($750 bond), False Driver’s License ($750 bond), Use of an Unlawful Instrument ($500 bond) and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia ($200 bond).
Anyone with information about these cases or any others is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 281-342-TIPS.
