The first suspect arrested, 42-year-old Christopher Colvin, of Missouri City, remains in the Montgomery County Jail charged with aggravated robbery; evading arrest or detention with a vehicle; theft of a firearm; unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon; and unauthorized use of a vehicle.

Colvin was arrested on the day of the crime after leading Montgomery County law enforcement agencies on a pursuit that went into North Harris County where he fled on foot after police disabled the stolen vehicle he was driving. Agencies from both counties swarmed the area and Colvin was arrested, but Thomas was not in the vehicle and remained on the run until Monday.

The MCSO said the pair knocked on the door of the residence in the middle of the day, with Colvin dressed in a security guard uniform that the 24-year-old victim mistook for a police uniform. The victim opened the door and the two men brandished a gun and forced their way inside then struck the victim’s head with the gun, handcuffed and robbed him, and then stole in his car.

The victim, who was not seriously injured, managed to reach his cell phone and call 911 with a description of his assailants and his vehicle, and the information was broadcast to area law enforcement.

Soon, MCSO and Oak Ridge North Police patrol units were in pursuit of the stolen vehicle, which went southbound in Harris County where a Harris County Pct. 4 patrol unit deployed spikes twice. The second time was successful, disabling the vehicle in the area of Richey Rd. and Imperial Valley Drive. The vehicle pursuit ended, but then Colvin ran.

The Oak Ridge North Police Department, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Harris County Pct. 4 Constable’s Office, Houston Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office began to search the area by ground and air.

An HCSO K-9 unit located Colvin, who was arrested and returned to Montgomery County.
