Sugar Land police were called to investigate yet another home invasion robbery. According to police, about 11:30 Monday night they were notified of a home invasion robbery in the 3300 block of Riviera Drive in the Alcorn Bend subdivision in Sugar Land.
When officers arrived on the scene, they learned six occupants of the residence had been tied up against their will. The intruders had gained entry to the home through a back door. The intruders were described as 6-8 Spanish speaking black males and Hispanic males. Although bound against their will and held hostage, none of the victims suffered serious physical injuries.
The suspects were caught because Officer Shockey got on US 59 northbound and began looking for suspicious vehicles with occupants that matched the description of the suspects. Officer Shockey located a vehicle he believed was occupied by the suspects and followed it until backup help could arrive. While waiting for that backup, the suspect vehicle traveled into the Houston city limits where some of the occupants jumped from the moving vehicle. Officer Shockey was able to chase one suspect on foot and detain him.
Elmer Marquez, 32, an illegal immigrant from Guatemala was arrested and taken into custody. According to police, the stolen property from the Alcorn Bend home and a gun were recovered from the suspect vehicle. The vehicle was processed for evidence and the federal immigration service (ICE) was notified.
No further details were available at press time.
