EMC man arrested for a variety of crimes

NEW CANEY- The Pct. 4 Constable’s Office and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man on February 12, who was suspected of a rash of recent crimes in East Montgomery County.

James Blair Cress, 29 of Grangerland was initially charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle; possession of a controlled substance; and bail jumping / failure to appear related to a burglary charge in Harris County. Bond was set at $25,000 for the local charges and he is held without bond on the Harris County charge.

According to Pct. 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden, Cress was believed to be responsible for “a recent outbreak of business burglaries and auto thefts” in East Montgomery County.

On Wednesday, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement that substantiated Hayden’s claim, saying “Cress has cooperated with Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Detectives and has been linked to five burglaries and several stolen vehicles.”

Pct. 4 deputies found Cress in a New Caney trailer park, driving a vehicle that was reported stolen in Polk County. Montgomery County Auto Theft Task Force detectives and MCSO property crimes detectives responded to the scene as well.
Cress was arrested and the vehicle was confiscated along with a prescription narcotic.
More charges and arrests are anticipated, according to Hayden.

“We believe this arrest is going to clear quite a few burglary cases,” Hayden said. “I hope with this arrest we’ll see a decline in the number of businesses burglarized.”

The number of burglaries of businesses increased in Pct. 4 recently, many with entry made by busting through a wall.

Hayden called the arrest a “great example of the progress being made in East Montgomery County because of the cooperation between the Constables Department and the Sheriff’s Department.”

Cress has a lengthy rap sheet that spans ten years, with multiple charges related to burglaries and thefts, marijuana possession, resisting arrest, and interfering with the duties of a public servant. He was last released by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in November 2008.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation should contact Detective Chris Tate at 936-577-8943 or Montgomery County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-392-STOP (7867), www.montgomerycountycrimestoppers.org
