Video shows perpetrators burglarizing vehicles in Fort Bend County; reward offered


FORT BEND, Texas — A reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of the perpetrators who burglarized more than a dozen vehicles in the area near Old Richmond Road and Highway 6.

On Wednesday, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to 16 cases of burglary of a vehicle in neighborhoods near FM 1464, Old Richmond Road and Voss Road.

Video from one of the residents shows three perpetrators driving through a neighborhood in a late-model white Chevrolet Malibu. Once the vehicle was parked, the men would comb through the vehicles parked outside of homes. The burglars would then shatter windows of the vehicles, searching for property.

Investigators believe the suspects were searching for guns and cash or credit cards.

The suspects are said to all be about 5-feet, 10-inches tall with slender builds. All wore t-shirts and each wore heavy gloves in order to clear glass out of doors. Information, which leads to the apprehension and filing of charges on the suspects involved, could earn you up to $5,000 cash reward.

“If you are parking vehicles outside, make sure your doors are locked, don’t leave valuables inside the vehicle, keep your outside lights on and don’t ignore your dog barking late at night,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls. “If you believe something wrong is occurring, contact the Sheriff’s Office at 281-341-4665. We will respond.”

Anyone who has information on this crime is asked to call Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers, Inc. at (281) 342-TIPS (8477). You can also Text FBCCS plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), in addition to submitting online. All tipsters remain anonymous.
