Last month, police received a report of a break-in at the Bayou Bend Museum, a branch of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. According to MFAH, Robertson and a woman entered the museum through a grate to a basement window.

Police say the suspects appeared to have a motor boat waiting for them in the bayou, which borders the museum.
Officers were staged on the West Loop feeder road bridge over the bayou, but before the suspects got that far, police say they hid with the boat somewhere near the Brenner's on the Bayou restaurant in a culvert.

According to MFAH, no works of art were damaged and nothing was removed from the premises. The Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens sits on 14 acres, straddling both sides of Buffalo Bayou.
Robertson is currently out on bond. He did not appear for a scheduled court appearance Thursday morning. The woman remains on the run.
