On July 12, 2018 officers with the Houston Police Department and Harris County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in the apprehension of five wanted fugitives. Six men are charged with “Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity” after an ATM theft in Montgomery County on March 17, 2018. One of the men, Wallace Thomas, of Houston is already in custody in the Harris County jail for other pending felony charges. Kerry Moss, 19, of Houston was arrested on West Lake Houston Parkway Thursday morning. Alexander Clinton, 19, of Houston was arrested Thursday morning, Frank Kelly, 20, of Houston, was arrested in Kingwood Thursday morning. David Nelson and Trevion Jackson were arrested in Northeast Houston early Thursday morning. At the time of the arrest, one of the suspects was found to be on bond and two are on deferred adjudication” for felony offenses.
Frank Kelly is on Deferred Adjudication for “Burglary of a Building” out of Harris County’s 248th district court. On August 14, 2017 Kelly broke into a building and stole 13 tablet computers, 5 smartwatch wristbands. Kelly was given deferred adjudication probation on February 13, 2018. The period of probation was to be 2-years with a $200 fine and 60-hours of community service. On March 29, 2017 he was arrested for displaying fictitious license plates. In November of 2015 he was given 10 days in the Harris County Jail on the charge. On August 27, 2015 he was arrested for theft after stealing 3 light panels. He was offered deferred adjudication but refused it in lieu of 15-days in the Harris County Jail. With him now in the Montgomery County Jail he is being held with no bond.
David Nelson also has an extensive criminal background. He started out small. In September of 2016 he was charged with stealing two pairs of shoes and a shirt in Harris County. For that he was given 10-days in the Harris County Jail. Then in November of 2016 he was arrested for carrying a handgun in a vehicle along with possession of marijuana. The gun charge was dismissed. Then on April 28, 2018 he was again arrested in Harris County for two counts of aggravated robbery using a gun. These after violent cell phone store robberies. He was out on a $50,000 bond when he stole an ATM from a hotel on July 1, 2018. The Judge then signed a motion to revoke Nelsons bond. He is now being held in the Harris County Jail.
Alexander Clinton also has a history in Harris County. In March 2017 he was arrested for carrying a handgun in a motor vehicle. He was given 18 months deferred adjudication in June 2017. But on May 7, 2018 he was charged with burglary of a building. This along with failing to report for probation, paying his fees and positive drug tests prompted the Harris County District Attorney to file a motion to revoke the probation. He was arrested but given a personal recognizance bond after filing a motion to convert the deferred probation to regular probation. This meaning, instead of being erased from his record as it would have in deferred it would show as a conviction and keep him on probation. He was to appear in front of the judge on July 5. On May 7, 2018 he was charged with burglary with intent to commit theft in the 179th District Court of Harris County. This after he and several others including Cedric Seals pried open an ATM in East Houston after breaking into the store. Seals who was a co-defendant in that case was involved with 4 others on May 22, 2018 when they went into the Crosby Kroger Store on FM 2100 and using crowbars and robbed the store in the middle of the day. They then fled the scene but were arrested a short time later by Houston Police. Three cash drawers full of money were recovered. Seals is currently out on a $100,000 bond. He has not been implicated in the Montgomery County case and Clinton was not implicated in the Kroger robbery. For the burglary and ATM theft Harris County Prosecutor Tiffany Alfred filed a motion requesting a high bond on Clinton due to the extensive damage done to the building and that he was under deferred probation in the other case. That high bond was a whopping $15,000. Two days later he made the bond and was released. On June 13 he was given deferred adjudication probation for a period of 5-years with a stipulation that he pay a $2,500 restitution. This while he was awaiting a Harris County Misdemeanor Court to revoke his deferred probation and convert it to probation. Clinton is in the Montgomery County Jail on a $250,000 bond in the 359th District Court.
Wallace Thomas is another career criminal who has gotten away with a lot in Harris County. In May of 2016 he was charged with theft of between $2500 and $30,000. This after the theft of one of many ATV’s. For that Harris County gave him a $2,000 bond. Two days later he was given deferred adjudication for 2-years. But then just 5-months later a motion to adjudicate his probation was filed by the Harris County District Attorney after he also was accused of stealing two pair of shoes and a shirt on September 17, 2016 and failing to pay fines and fees for his probation. For the shoe theft he was given 7-days on the Harris County Jail. However, the Judge sentenced him to 9 months State Jail for the probation violation/theft of the ATV. Then on January 14, 2018 he broke into a Humble motorsports business along with four others and stole 5 dirt bikes valued at more than $28,000. Once again, his bond in Harris County was set at $1,500 and he bonded out 2 days later. Just 3-months later, on April 23rd he was arrested with felon in possession of a weapon. This after Houston Police arrested him for being in possession of a .40-calibur semi-automatic pistol. Harris County Assistant District Attorney Colson Simone filed a motion for a High Bond. Again, a mere $15,000. However, a $30,000 bond was then set by the judge for the gun case and Wallace was released. Days later a motion to revoke his bond for the single ATV theft was filed and he was arrested. But then 1-day later he was able to get another bond set at $4,500 and 4-days later he was released from the Harris County Jail on that bond. Just 7-days later, on May 3, 2018 he was to appear in front of Judge Velasquez in Harris County. He never showed up and the bond was forfeited. At that time KPRC News featured Wallace on their newscast and website on May 9. On June 3rd he was again arrested and remains in the Harris County Jail where he is set to appear on the burglary and weapons charge next Friday. Depending on the outcome he will then be transferred to Montgomery County to face the ATM theft charge.
Kerry Moss, 19, of Houston also remains in the Montgomery County Jail on a $50,000 bond. He is charged with engaging in organized criminal activity.
Trevion Jackson, has also been involved before. in 2013 he was sentenced to 100 days in the Harris County Jail for criminal mischief of $1500 to $20,000. Then in 2015 he was arrested and sentenced to 10 days in the Harris County Jail for criminal trespass. He will be transferred shortly to Montgomery County.
