CYPRESS, Texas - Deputies identified a robbery suspect from a traffic ticket he accidentally dropped during the crime.

According to deputies, Daniel Furstenfeld broke into a home in the 18200 block of Arbormont Drive on October 14 and stole $2,000 in cash and other items.

The homeowner noticed Furstenfeld leaving the house, called 911 and started chasing him, deputies said.

At some point, Furstenfeld turned toward the victim and pointed what looked like a gun at him, according to reports.

Deputies said the victim stopped chasing the suspect and went home.

While deputies were investigating the robbery, they found a cell phone and a traffic citation on the ground where the victim had confronted the suspect, deputies said.

Deputies later identified Furstenfeld from the citation and information from witnesses who saw him immediately after the robbery, investigators said.

Furstenfeld is charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
