Bankhead Highway burglars arrested

May 31, 2012 by Katie Martinez

Parker County Sheriff’s Deputies have arrested two men in connection with three recent burglaries.

Deputies responded to a burglary in progress call around 3:30 p.m., Wednesday in the 3300 block of East Bankhead Highway.

Deputies discovered two suspects inside the residence after a neighbor witnessed the pair breaking into the home.

When deputies arrived on scene, they observed a black Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck backed into the driveway, facing the roadway. Deputies reported the rear door of the home had been forcefully entered.

Deputies immediately cleared the residence after hearing movement from within the home.

Luis Osvaldo Montes Jr, 17, and Armando Brandon Rodriguez, 18, both of Fort Worth, were inside the residence and surrendered after deputies instructed them to exit the home.

Deputies searched both suspects, discovering Montes had a rubber glove on his person. Montes told deputies he used the glove so he would not leave fingerprints during the burglary.

Rodriguez claimed to be suffering from a panic attack. Deputies called for an ambulance to respond to the scene. Rodriguez was assessed by paramedics, and released at the scene as healthy.

Deputies discovered a pill inside the suspect vehicle along with a rifle and three firearm cases, three cell phones, CDs, a laptop computer, an Xbox game system with a Kinect system.

The suspects implicated themselves in two other burglaries, one occurring earlier that day on the same street and the other on May 7.
Home owners in the first Bankhead Highway burglary reported the suspects stole two iPods, three cell phones, a jump drive and miscellaneous business cards.

The May 7, burglary occurred in the 100 block of Lakeview Terrace, where a neighbor reported seeing a black truck leaving the residence.
Deputies observed the back door to have been forcefully entered, with several pry marks around the locking mechanism.

The property owner reported the suspects stole two flat screen televisions, an Xbox game system a Sony Playstation with assorted video games.

Both suspects were arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation. Additional charges are pending the investigation. As of Thursday afternoon, both suspects remained incarcerated. Bond has yet to be set.

The cases are currently under investigation and will be forwarded to the Parker County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of prosecution.
