On April 26, 2017, Deputies with Constable Mark Herman's office were dispatched to the Home Depot store located at 20100 block of the North Freeway. Witnesses informed responding deputies of the fact that suspects entered the store and stole items and fled in a white vehicle. Home Depot security personnel were able to follow the suspects in a vehicle, at which time, they also called Precinct 4 dispatch to report the direction and location the suspect were fleeing. Within minutes Constable Patrol deputies set up a rolling police perimeter and intercepted the suspect vehicle in the 20000 block of the North Freeway, and quickly arrested the 4 occupants of the suspect vehicle. All 4 suspects were positively identified by witnesses and several power tools taken in the theft were recovered by Constable Investigators that valued $1,100.00. Video from within the store showed 2 of the suspects enter the store to commit the theft and then flee without paying, to the suspect vehicle in the parking lot, where the other 2 suspects were waiting with the sliding door open for their quick getaway.

Constable investigators were also able to connect the same 4 suspects to a similar theft at the Home Depot store in Porter, Texas earlier in the day. Investigators will be coordinating with Montgomery County law enforcement on the theft in Porter to ensure more criminal charges are filed. The Harris County District Attorney's Office accepted Organized Retail Theft on all 4 suspects. The 4 suspects have been identified as Salvador Delgado, Chayne Crossley, Ellis Crossley, and an adult female who has not been formally charged at this time.

"The retail businesses in our area can rest easy with these suspected thieves off our street. Our streets are much safer with all 4 in the Harris County Jail." said Constable Mark Herman.
