Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office detectives have made an arrest that they say will help clear five burglary cases in the Greatwood subdivision, and it's all thanks to an alert neighbor.

Earlier this month, a Greatwood resident saw a suspicious vehicle in her neighborhood and took a photo of its license plate. The car was a blue Toyota Corolla, which also turned up in a video captured by another resident.

Detectives found the vehicle's owner in Houston, who said she had loaned her car to a friend, Alana Harrison, 24, also of Houston.

Detectives tracked down Harrison and brought her in for questioning, where they say she admitted to participating in five burglaries in the Greatwood subdivision.

According to the sheriff's office, Harrison said two friends asked her to drive them to Greatwood where they committed thee burglaries on Oct. 4 and two burglaries on Oct. 7. Harrison said she only knew the two men by their street names. Detectives are seeking information about those two suspects, who are only described as two black males who live in Houston.

None of the items stolen in these cases has been recovered at this time.

Harrison is charged with burglary of a habitation, and remains in jail on $80,000 bond.

The cases remain under investigation. Anyone who may have knowledge of the two suspects may call Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS (8477).
