Authorities are asking for help as they search for a suspect who is involved in two burglary cases in rural Fort Bend County.
Officials said around 9 a.m. Wednesday, deputies with the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home burglary in the 8900 block of Janda Road in Fairchilds. A woman told police she was at the home babysitting when she heard a loud crashing noise from the back of the house.
The woman told authorities that she confronted three black men when she walked into the kitchen as they were trying to remove a flat screen television. She believes they got in the house by using the back door.
According to the woman, the suspects ran out of the house and drove off in a white Chevrolet Impala.
A few minutes, the suspects’ vehicle was spotted by police in Needville.
Officials said two of the suspects, both Needville residents, were arrested, but a third suspect got away from police.
Authorities said 25-year-old Leonard Mayberry Jr. and 20-year-old Alfonzo Armstead were taken into custody and taken to the Fort Bend County Jail under $20,000 bonds.
Police said Jarcquez Williams, of Rosenberg, was the suspect who got away.
During the investigation, authorities said they found items in the suspects’ vehicle that were linked to another burglary reported in the 7800 block of FM 2977, located less than a mile from the other incident. During that incident, officials said the resident reported the missing property Wednesday evening.
While police continue searching for Williams, they ask that anyone with information on his whereabouts to contact the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office at 281-341-4665 or Fort Bend Crime Stoppers, Inc. by calling 281-342-TIPS (8477), texting FBCCS plus the tip to CRIMES (274637) or clicking here.
