  • Released pending investigation after video surveillance identified him breaking into a closed business and taking property…….Seriously?!….why not breaking and entering….burglary and theft charges…..what kind of detectives does HPD have anyways.?……..

  • Ok so where is the video and the name of this punk? Once “booked” the names of those arrested are matter of public record. So doesn’t the SA reporters know this? Just ask to see ” the books”.

  • I have a security camera trained on my vehicle out front of my apartment; one early morning about 4am while it was still dark out, my security camera which turns on when detecting motion showed this white young dude walking about several vehicles other than my truck checking to see if by chance the owners forgot to lock/secure their vehicles, with no success. He finally worked his way to my truck which is already equipped with a burglary alarm with blinking red lights, so without touching my truck he just tried peering into the windows looking for something of interest. Having an unsuccessful forage he just walked off into the night.
    When I shared this footage with police in my community they pointed out that unless that guy actually broke into any of the vehicles they weren’t able to make an arrest.
    I shared this footage with my apartment management team and soon after, they evicted this guy and his girl friend.
