Six Richmond/Rosenberg residents have been arrested for the rash of west Fort Bend County, Needville, Rosenberg and SW Houston burglaries.
The majority of the burglaries occurred in the unincorporated areas of Fort Bend County and the cities of Rosenberg and Needville, said Sheriff‘s spokesperson Terriann Carlson.
During the course of the investigation, Detectives with Needville, Rosenberg, and the sheriff’s department worked together to obtain information and surveillance video that led to the arrest of six suspects, all charged with Burglary of a Habitation, said Carlson. She also explained that surveillance video had captured images of two of the suspects arrested.
Those arrested have been identified as Eduardo Rodriguez, 18, of Rosenberg, Ashlee Rodriguez-Trevino, 17, of Richmond, Gilbert Garza, Jr., 19, of Richmond, Justin Miller, 22, of Rosenberg, Bolivar Santana, 22, of Rosenberg, and his brother Jovani Santana, 18, of Rosenberg.
Carlson said Eduardo Rodriguez and Ashlee Rodriguez-Trevino both have bonds of $100,000 each. Gilbert Garza, Jr., Justin Miller and Bolivar Santana have bonds of $20,000 each. Jovani Santana is charged with two counts of Burglary of a Habitation with a bond of $20,000 for each charge.
According to Carlson, “The suspects have acknowledged involvement in over 100 residential burglaries in Fort Bend County and Southwest Houston.”
Thus far, said Carlson, a total of eight burglaries have been solved in the unincorporated area of Fort Bend County and Rosenberg. She said the suspects generally stole electronics and firearms then almost immediately sold the property on the streets.
“The burglaries were committed when a female suspect would knock on the front door to confirm that no one was home. If no one was home they would then force entry at the back of the residence, subsequently stealing property,” said Carlson.
The investigation is still ongoing. Detectives expect more arrests as the cases continue.
Anyone with information on the suspects, circumstances, or stolen property involving these cases is asked to contact the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office at (281) 341-4665 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-8477 (TIPS).
