KATY/FORT BEND COUNTY (Covering Katy News) - The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office arrested three men after several cars were burglarized in the Silver Ranch subdivision at about 10 a.m. Wednesday, September 4.

Two suspects were caught in the 3200 block of Bandera Run Court and another suspect was nabbed a short distance away in the 26000 block of Creston Cliff Court, in the Katy/Fort Bend County area.

The search for the suspect began at about 6:15 a.m. when deputies discovered a burglarized vehicle in the Silver Ranch subdivision. The suspects ran from the scene.

"Thanks to help from residents calling our 911 dispatchers, deputies, air support and K9 units we were able to locate and arrest three suspects," said a statement from the Sheriff's Office. 

On Wednesday afternoon Jimmy Heyward, 19, Jayvon Hughes, 18, and Jermaine Strong, 19, remained at the Fort Bend County Jail facing several charges including theft of a firearm, engaging in organized criminal activity and misdemeanor evading arrest.  

“Thanks to the seamless teamwork from all of our first responders we were able to take these individuals into custody quickly without anyone getting hurt,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls. 

The suspects’ vehicle was later found with a handgun "in plain sight," the Sheriff's Office statement said. The gun was reported stolen from Harris County. Other property in the vehicle has been linked to other area burglaries. 

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office at 281-341-4665, extension 1.

So glad to know that the Ft. Bend County Pct. 3 Constable's deputies were very instrumental in the capturing of these suspects.


This is really good news since there has been so many nightly car break ins all throughout the Katy/Ft Bend areas in the last couple years. I fear there maybe more out there though. My fathers gun (a glock) and HPD badge was stolen out of his truck last year shortly before he passed away. I don’t know if the gun is ever recovered if they would return it to us or not but that is my wish. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Thank you to the officers who got these guys.
