A man sought on multiple felony warrants in Fort Bend County has been arrested, according to the sheriff’s office.

Carlos Barrera, 27, was arrested last week at a home in the 2900 block of Misty Park Drive in Houston by a sheriff’s office investigator and several other members of the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force, according to the sheriff’s office.

Jacqueline Preston, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, declined to comment on the arrest, or elaborate on what, exactly, Barrera is accused of.

Barrera is charged with burglary of a habitation, robbery, attempted arson and burglary of a habitation with intent to commit felony in connection to incidents dating back to October 2020, according to Fort Bend County court records.

His bond is set at a combined $182,000, according to court records. As of Thursday afternoon, he has bonded out of jail, Jacqueline Preston, spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, said.

FBCSO said deputies initially responded to a family violence assault call on June 10 in the 17000 block of Pastoria Drive in the Mission West subdivision, later learning that the victim was also allegedly robbed. Police said they had already been searching for Barrera after responding to the same residence in March for additional alleged family violence-related charges, and issued warrants for his arrest following the latter incident.
