Masked men fail to steal safe in Fort Bend County after 3 attempts
Three masked men had a tough time getting an overnight job off the ground after making several attempts to steal a safe from a business in the Greatwood area, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.
According to deputies, two men with white rags covering their face used a crowbar to break into the back door of a Jiffy Lube in the 20000 block of U.S. 59 feeder road around 6 p.m. July 30.
Investigators said the men tried to remove a small safe from the manager’s office, but it wouldn’t budge. Officers said the men left and then came back a few minutes later to give it a second attempt. Alas, they failed again.
The men brought in a friend when they returned for a third time around 7:30 a.m. July 31. This time, the third burglar gave it a try and also failed.
After a final attempt, investigators said all three men left the building empty-handed. Authorities are still searching for them.
Officers described the first intruder a Hispanic man about 5 feet 11 inches tall with a medium build and light-toned skin. His black hair has in a fade cut and he was wearing a blue long-sleeve shirt, blue jeans and white Nike shoes.
The second intruder was also Hispanic and around the same height with a similar build, investigators said. The video shows he was wearing a white hoodie, black shorts and white Nike shoes.
The third person is a little over 6 feet tall with a heavy build, officers said. He was wearing a black hoodie with a blue shirt underneath, white pants and white Nike shoes.
The Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward for information leading to the arrest of the three men involved.
