SPD: Alert officers catch automobile burglary suspects

From the Shenandoah Police Department

SHENANDOAH- While patrolling the parking areas of local Shenandoah hotels just after 2:00am on Monday, Officer Barry Gresham saw a suspicious vehicle driving through the Towne Place Suites parking lot with its lights off, and then onto the service road at Vision Park and Interstate 45 South.

A check of the vehicle’s license plate revealed that the registration was expired and it was subsequently stopped. Officer Gresham was concerned that the three males riding inside the vehicle had burglary tools in their possession at 2 a.m. in an area chock-full of unattended vehicles.

After other officers discovered two burglarized vehicles in the area that the males had just left, it was found that the same males were also in possession of property from those vehicles. The property was returned to its rightful owners.

The three suspects, all from Houston, are identified as 26-year-old Raymond Strahan Jr., 21-year-old Kendrick Thomas, and 19-year-old Brandon Gibson.

The trio was transported to the Montgomery County Jail. All three were charged with possession of stolen property and burglary of a motor vehicle, both of which are Class A Misdemeanors.
