Around 7am on May 23, a neighbor reported a break-in at a home in the 15300 block of Cobblestone Point Court, according to Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers. Deputies arrived and found the glass on the backdoor of the house had been broken.
The homeowner, who was out of town at the time of the crime, guided authorities through the home to gauge what had been stolen. Among the items confirmed stolen were a handgun, jewelry as well as a debit card.
Authorities suspect the break-in actually happened a day earlier because that debit card had been used at a nearby convenience store and then later attempted at a Walmart in Sugar Land but was rejected.
Surveillance video captured the suspect as he walked out of one of those stores. He's been described as a white or Hispanic male, between the ages of 18 and 25, about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a slim build. He was seen wearing a white baseball cap, a white T-shirt and baggy black shorts. It appears he has tattoos on his right forearm and may have a thin beard.
Information which leads to the apprehension and filing of charges on the suspects involved could earn a reward of up to $5,000.
