$250,000 BOND FOR HOUSTON TEENS INVOLVED IN WOODLANDS CARJACKING

DELGADO, DAVID

Montgomery County Justice of the Peace Wayne Mack this morning set a $250,000 bond on two teens involved in the overnight carjacking in The Woodlands. David Delgado, 19 of Blue Glen Ln in Houston and Ricardo Govea, 19 of Candleway Drive in Houston, both remain in the Montgomery County Jail. Since a weapon was used the second degree robbery becomes a first degree aggravated robbery with a penalty of 5 to 99 years.

******* EARLIER STORY ********************************
Just after 11 pm Tuesday Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputies in The Woodlands were alerted to a carjacking that just occurred on Woodlands Parkway and Forest Gate. Units were advised a black Toyota struck a 2015 white Cadillac at that location. As the driver exited the Cadillac to exchange information, a silver Jeep Patriot with paper tags pulled in front of the Cadillac. The driver exited the Jeep with what appeared to be a shotgun. The male was then carjacked. Units immediately converged on the area. A deputy with a keen eye was on Woodlands Parkway approaching East Panther Creek when she spotted a silver Jeep with a paper tag. Waiting for backup she followed the vehicle eastbound until just before reaching Grogans Mill where they initiated a traffic stop. The male driver stopped immediately. As deputies approached the vehicle gloves and a long firearm was lying on the back seat. The male was taken into custody. Moments later another deputy on Interstate 45 spotted the stolen Cadillac just south of Woodlands Parkway and initiated a traffic stop. That male was also taken into custody without incident. The driver of the black Toyota was not located but has been identified. Several times over the past few weeks criminals from Harris County have come to Montgomery County to engage in criminal activity. Almost all have met deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and will now have to face the Montgomery County Criminal Justice System which is known to be a lot tougher on criminals.

        Delgado and Govea both appear to be US citizens from the 45/1960 area – no ICE detainers show on their records so far. Hopefully Mr. Engle will publish an update when the Nissan driver/3rd perp is arrested or gets himself killed trying to avoid arrest. I would bet that the three perps will be allowed to plea to some much lesser charge, given my understanding of the MC criminal “justice” system. Then they will be allowed to serve small fractions of their sentences.

    I dispute your innuendo that Montgomery County is especially tough on crime. I know of a very recent case (2 months ago) where a person was caught with hydrocodone and a weapon and was initially charged for both the weapon (while in PCS) and PCS. A month later, it was all plead down to a minor weapons charge. Under the original charges, this criminal would have been looking at 9 months to 1 year in State Jail. The Montgomery County District Attorney’s decision to plea deal for a much lesser charge resulted in a sentence of 15 days in the Montgomery County jail. For whatever reason, this criminal only served 4-5 days before being released by the MCSO. The existing laws are plenty strict; the Montgomery County District Attorney did not serve the citizens well and appears to be weak and an appeaser of criminals in this case. I live 2 blocks from the scene of the carjacking crime and am glad that the MCSO got on top of it. Can we expect the MCDA to prosecute these criminals to the full extent of the law, or will the MCDA accept much lesser charges in a plea bargain?
