Report of Gunshots Leads to Burglary Arrest

On Monday, July 27th, at 1130 a.m., Officer Bryan Shelton was dispatched to a “shots fired” call in the 400 block of Hoover Drive. A witness saw a subject park a maroon Mazda 626 and walk into the woods. The witness then heard a gunshot coming from the woods. The suspect then returned to his car and left toward Bellaire Boulevard.

Officer Shelton located the suspect vehicle at Corporate Drive and Southwest Parkway, approximately half a mile from the call location. Officer Shelton, with assistance from Officers Luke Slavens and George Reed, stopped the vehicle. Inside of the car, officers located a pillowcase containing two handguns, collector coins, and jewelry. Knowing that burglars routinely use pillowcases to carry stolen items, the officers suspected that this subject may be guilty of more than just firing a gun. The suspect was arrested for Unlawful Carrying Weapon. Later in the day, Officer Carla Michel linked the recovered items to a burglary on Live Oak (in close proximity to the original “shots fired” call). After further investigation, Detective David Henley obtained a warrant for the suspect for Burglary of a Habitation. A second suspect was implicated, but not located at the time.
