During the stop of the vehicle, the police officer found out the name of the car’s driver on the day of the Sewanee burglary. A further investigation led to a felony charge of Burglary of a Habitation being filed on the suspect.

When the West U charge was filed, they didn’t have to look far – the suspect was already in the Harris County Jail on a different home burglary charge.
