Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel said that two men and a juvenile have been charged with Burglary of a Habitation after a deputy sheriff stopped a suspicious vehicle on his way to a burglary call.
On the afternoon of August 15, about 3 p.m., deputies responded to a residential burglary in the 13900 block of New Village in the Townewest subdivision, said Haenel. As the responding deputy traveled to the home, he noticed a suspicious vehicle at the intersection of Old Richmond Road and State Highway 6, not far from the Townewest neighborhood.
That deputy then conducted a traffic stop, said Haenel. During that traffic stop, “The deputy found three individuals inside with items that appeared to be stolen property,” said Haenel.
The stolen property, now recovered from the suspicious vehicle occupied by three suspicious acting males included televisions, a safe, two laptop computers and a jewelry box, said Haenel. He also said that a pistol stolen from a Mission Bend home the day before was also recovered during this stop.
The two adult suspects have been identified as Damien Gobert, 22, of Houston and Clarence Knox, 33, of Fort Bend County. A 16-year-old juvenile was also taken into custody and faces the same charges; he was booked into the county’s juvenile facility.
All three face assorted felony charges.
