MCSO THANKS RESIDENTS FOR HELP IN CAPTURING THIEVES

On December 1, 2018, at about 7:00 a.m., Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a Burglary of a Habitation call in the 19600 block of Pin Oak Drive in Porter, Texas. Neighboring residents witnessed a white Jeep driving around the neighborhood and later saw two white males carrying tools out of a house. When confronted by the neighbors, the two males, identified as 38-year-old Jeffery Cloud and 20-year-old William Russian, ran into the woods, and a white female driver, later identified as 37-year-old Melissa Marshall, fled the neighborhood in the Jeep. Marshall returned to the neighborhood a short time later to look for Cloud and Russian, at which time the neighbors contacted 911 and followed the Jeep in their own vehicle. Nearby Deputies were able to intercept Marshall during their investigation and learned Cloud and Russian were at a nearby friend’s residence on Amy Lane, where they had been staying. Deputies went to the residence and observed Cloud and Russian in the front yard. However, as soon as the two suspects saw law enforcement, they retreated into the home, and a perimeter was set up by law enforcement. Luckily, Deputies were able to coax Cloud and Russian and were detained, were they both confessed to burglarizing a residence to steal property. Cloud, Russian, and Marshall were all arrested and charged with Burglary of a Habitation. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the neighboring residents for being observant and reporting the suspicious activity to the Sheriff’s office so these criminals could be taken off the streets. This is the second incident within 24 hours of each other in which the public has assisted the Sheriff’s Office in the arrest of criminals attempting to steal the property of hard-working citizens in Montgomery County. This incident is but another example of what happens when law enforcement and the community work together to successfully solve problems in the community.
