Houston Police recently took three individuals into custody that are suspected of a series of theft crimes at Hobby Airport parking garages. The three males, ages 17, 19 and 22, are from Kazakhstan and in the U.S. attending the local community college on student visas. Authorities have been investigating a string of thefts occurring in the airport’s garages for the last several months. Thieves had been targeting luxury cars and steeling high-end rims and tires. The tires alone on some models could sell for thousands on internet markets such as Craigslist. Police had to look over many hours of video surveillance of the extensive parking garages in order to find any sort of pattern to the thefts so they could catch the culprits. HPD officers were finally able to apprehend the suspects after a recent night’s stake out. A set of stolen rims were on the car one of the suspects was driving at the time of the arrest. Theft crime charges can result in serious penalties. Make sure you have the help of a Houston criminal defense lawyer on your side!
