The Montgomery County Auto Theft Task Force received information that there were several stolen vehicles located at 8886 FM 1696 West, Bedias, Texas. Auto Theft Detectives then contacted the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and requested this location be flown so they could see what vehicles were on location.

After the reconnaissance information was received, Detectives from the Auto Theft Task Force recognized several vehicles of interest on the property and learned that the person living on the property had an open felony warrant from Madison County.

On November 18, 2015, Detectives from the Auto Theft Task Force, Grimes County Sheriff’s Office, Grimes County Constable Precinct 1 and a trooper from DPS went to this location, where Mr. Jamail was arrested on the Madison County warrant, and was transported to Madison County jail by the Madison County Sheriff’s Office without incident.

Task Force Detectives then attempted to identify the suspected trailers that had there identifying information removed. Detectives contacted the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) agent assigned to the task force and he was given the partial Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) that had been found on the suspected vehicles. With this information the NICB investigator was able to identify three (3) of the 6 trailers on location as stolen. The stolen trailers that were identified are as follows:

A 2015 Spree Superlite RV, stolen from Madisonville Police Department;

A 1993 Dutchman RV, stolen form Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office;

A 2005 12’ Doolittle Tandem Axel Trailer with pressure washer and push mower, stolen form Walker County Sheriff’s Office;

Task Force Detectives also found a tandem axle horse trailer and a Texas Brag trailer (low boy) that had all identifying numbers and sticker information removed. Under State Law, peace officers can presume that vehicles with identifying information removed or altered are stolen. The horse trailer and the low boy were removed from the property and taken to the Grimes County Sheriff’s Office for further investigation.

This was truly a group effort by all agencies that are partners in the Auto Theft Task Force. Auto Theft Task Force Detectives were able to arrest 1 individual on a felony warrant and recover approximately $65,000.00 of stolen vehicles.

The Montgomery County Auto Theft Task Force operates with grant funding from the Auto Burglary and Theft Prevention Authority (ABTPA) and Memorandum of Understanding (MOU’s) with the Sheriffs of the above listed Counties.



Brandt Lee Jamail, W/M, Dob. 03-18-1976, of Bedias, Texas was arrested on an Endangering a Child warrant from Madison County. Jamail was placed in the Madison County Jail and his bond was set at $20,000.00. Further charges on Jamail, for Theft by Possession (Felony) will be filed by Task Force personnel in Grimes County.
