Late Thursday evening the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a female who stated that someone was trying to break into her home on Ranch Lake Drive in the Sendera Ranch Subdivision. Multiple units responded to the scene.
When the first units arrived they learned the male had already fled with some items from the home. The female was not injured. Immediately a perimeter was set up and a search started using deputies, a DPS helicopter and a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit.
Many residents were met by officers checking vehicles and verifying several residents actually did live in the area.
Close to midnight the K-9 picked up a good scent and led deputies to the suspect who was attempting to make his way back to his car which was parked some distance away.
He was taken into custody, After being treated for a gash on his arm which he received when he broke into the home , he was transported to the Montgomery County Jail.
The Sheriff’s Office is continuing the investigation.
